Schneider trophy winner Supermarine S-6 over Calshot Spit at the mouth of Southampton water in 1929. The S-6 and S-6B were the ultimate expression of speed in the late twenties and early thirties. Designed by R.J. Mitchell, they embodied design features which would show up in his most famous creation, the Spitfire.

    Thanks. The research was aided by the extensive library at the Tangmere museum, who commissioned the picture. Even so, it took me ages to find a photo of Calshot seaplane base as it was in 1929.

  • Thanks. It’s with the museum now, and will be sent off for framing next week. Should be on display with the other Schneider trophy exhibits shortly. Now working on Supermarine Swift WK 198, which set the world speed record in 1953 with Mike Lithgow at the controls.
