Keep up with the air racing theme for this month, my latest caricature is very different. The Daily Mail Transatlantic Air Race is one where you take a peice of mail from either London to New York (Empire State Building) or from New York to London. In 1969 an Royal Navy F-4K flew the fastest time when attempting the New York to London run. 4 hrs 46 min and change from pick up to delivery, which set a record, and won the the race. So here you go he F-4K record setter from 892 sq. flown by Lt Cdr Davies and Lt Cdr Goddard RN.
