Category:de Havilland DH88 Comet
The De Havilland DH88 Comet was specifically designed for the 1934 MacRobertson Air Race. It set many aviation records before being used as a fast long range pioneer mail plane. Accidents and war in Europe put an end to their use until the 1980s when restoration was done on one airframe then a second one discovered in Portugal. Two flying replicas were built at the end of the century.
A total of five original aircraft were built.
The de Havilland DH.88 Comet must not be confused with the Caudron C.640 Typhon sharing a similar shape but the vertical stabilizer.
This page lists all films that feature a variation of the De Havilland DH88 Comet.
