FOLLOWING on the beating of the 100‐kilometre ‘closed circuit’ speed record, by the de Havilland Vampire and Meteor, the Supermarine Attacker and now the D.H. 108 successively, the aeroplane height record has now also come into the possession of Great Britain through a great flight by GROUP CAPTAIN JOHN CUNNINGHAM in a Vampire to a height which only just fell short of 60,000 feet—a performance which has, we feel, hardly received the publicity which is its due.
