Comet Racer Project Group
In 1934 Amy and her husband Jim Mollison entered the MacRobertson England to Australia air race. They bought a brand new plane designed for the race, a DH88 Comet Racer and named it Black Magic. Unfortunately they had to retire from the race due to engine problems. We are delighted to say that Black Magic has been found and is being restored to fly again! Read all about this incredible project and how you can donate and become a part of bringing Black Magic back to the skies!
