de Havilland DH.88 Comet Racer 'Black Magic'

In 1934 de Havilland designed an entirely new aircraft to compete in the MacRobertson England-Australia air race. Designated the DH.88 Comet Racer three aircraft were built speculatively and attracted significant interest from the best pilots of the day.

The first Comet to fly G-ASCP 'Black Magic' was owned and piloted in the race by Amy Johnson and her husband Jim Mollison – both world aviation record holders.

Departing from RAF Mildenhall at 06.30 am on October 20 1934 'Black Magic' set a new England-India record by reaching Karachi by 10 am the next day. During an unscheduled stop at Jobbolpore the only fuel available was petrol from the local bus company. Unfortunately this lead to engine damage and 'Black Magic' had to retire at Allahabad.

 Subsequently 'Black Magic' was sold to Portugal and discovered in a ruinous state in a barn a few years ago.

 “Black Magic” is now undergoing a full restoration at Derby Airfield in the UK by the Comet Racer Project Group www.cometracer.co.uk

 Black Star Brands is donating £1 from the proceeds of the sale of this garment to the restoration effort of this design classic.
