DE HAVILLAND COMET PR K5084, PHOTOGRAPHIC RECONNAISSANCE UNIT, RAF HESTON 1940

The MacRobertson International Air Race, a race between England and Melbourne to be held in October 1934 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the State of Victoria, was announced in 1933.  Despite previous British air racing successes, culminating in 1931 in the outright winning of the Schneider Trophy, there was no British aeroplane capable of putting up a challenge over the MacRobertson course with its long overland stages. In January 1934, the de Havilland company stepped into the breach when it offered to design a 200 kt aircraft to compete in the race and produce a limited run if three were ordered by February 1934.
G-ACSS was the property of Mr A.O.Edwards and was named Grosvenor House after the hotel which he managed. As is well known, Grosvenor House won that race in a time of 71 hours 18 seconds.
Grosvenor House was then taken charge of by the Air Ministry and flown to Martlesham Heath for evaluation. Repainted silver and given the military serial K5084 it made several flights before being written off and sold for scrap after a heavy landing. It was subsequently sold on, rebuilt and participated in numerous air races up to the outbreak of the Second World War.
In October 1939 the aircraft was acquired by Sydney Cotton and returned to military use - in its restored military identity of K5084 - with the Photographic Reconnaissance Unit (PRU).  Following modifications and painted in an unusual scheme similar to that worn by Hudson N7334 (destined to be a victim of so-called 'friendly fire' in March 1940), K5084 was used exclusively from June to August 1940 on low level photographic reconnaissance missions over French and Belgian ports to photograph the gathering German invasion fleet.
With the threat of invasion removed, and with more PR Spitfires becoming available to the PRU, K5084 was one again retired from military use, restored to the British civil aircraft register and can to this day be seen as part of the Suttleworth Collection at Old Warden airfield.

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

P38E flown by Douglas Bader 610sqn Tangmere Msrch 1941

The Americans are watching the air war in Europe with growing interest. In order to gauge the effects and effectiveness of their aircraft they send small amounts of various models over for the RAF to try. This is a fully equipped P38 with all proper engine parts in place. It is one of 12 that ended up at Tangmere. Douglas Bader had one marked up for his own use. He appreciated the concentrated fire of the 4x .50cal guns but distrusted the fitted 20mm (not 37mm) cannon. Pilots were ordered not to pursue across the channel as no aircraft should fall into enemy hands........

The need for every avaliable aircraft to tackle the threatened German invasion lead De Havillands to convert the DH.88 into a [very] light bomber. These were converted at their Hatfield Factory, being fitted with rackson the wings for a small bomb load and a perspex panel in the floor to aid bomb aiming. Given the very small bomb load, it was decided that the aircraft were best suited to the Army co-Operation role and were issued to 239 Squadron, which was based at Hatfield, to operate alongside their Lysanders. The model is of K5084 HB-X, September 1940.
