Comet Racer Project 2015 Summary

As the end of 2015 draws near the Comet Racer Project Group would like to thank all their supporters, volunteers and sponsors who helped with progress this year.  Many of the components are ready for great progress in 2016.  In particular the huge task of completing the wing is in an exciting stage with the first covering of ply now applied.  The complex task of aligning the undercarriage and engine mounts, so vital to undercarriage direction and engine thrust lines, is now in the stage of mounting all the complex metal work that is completed.  When these have been located and drilled, they will be given their final paint and the central, spruce cross ply can be started and completed.  Once that is done, the wing will be rotated over, the whole inside varnished and the top skin will go on. In tandem with this work will be decisions that will help future planning to the exciting and inevitable day when fuselage and wing will be married together.  G-ACSP “Black Magic” continues to move towards the day of her first flights.  In conjunction, and with the outstanding support of Derby Aero Club, the “Green Comet” G-RCSR (built in homage to the original G-ACSR) continues her build.  Once more thanks to all.  For more detailed news of the build progression, plus much more of all things dH88 Comet, please also see join the vibrant Facebook Group by clicking on the link on our main page.  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2016!
