Latest exciting news about G-RCSR, Ken Ferns flying replica of the green DH88 Comet. Thanks to Mark Shortman from the CAA, who had a number of meetings on his behalf with the CAA Registrations Dept, it can be announced that they have agreed that his Comet can wear the registration of the original green Comet G-ACSR, on a 12 month renewable license. This DH88 Comet will still be registered as a replica with G-RCSR showing in small letters on the fuselage sides just below the tail plane plus on the fireproof plate in the cockpit which has to state it is G-RCSR. This is fantastic news and a great boost for the project and Ken can only say a massive thank you to Mark and it is a step closer to his ambitions to recreate the start of the race along side Grosvenor House and Black Magic. The new registration is now painted on the underside of the wing which is nearly fully painted.
