    The Shuttleworth Collection’s 1934 de Havilland DH88 ‘Grosvenor House’ flies a topside pass along a sunny Old Warden flightline during a spirited display at their August 2020 ‘Drive-in’ Airshow.

    A total of five DH88s were constructed – three of which being destined for the 1934 MacRobertson Air Race between England and Australia – incorporating numerous state-of-the-art aeroplane construction techniques of the time, and only completing the first flight a few weeks before the race.
    Taking a total of 70 hours, 54 minutes and 18 seconds, Grosvenor House became the winning aircraft in the race, piloted by Charles William Anderson Scott and Tom Campbell Black to victory.
