The True Significance of Records

The True Significance of Records FOR the first time Great Britain holds the three principal World's air records for we do not think anyone will cavil at that description of the three absolute records of speed, altitude and distance in a straight line. Though we are not directly concerned with them, it may not be out of place to mention also that a British boat holds the World's water speed record and a British motorcar the World's land speed record, which Sir Malcolm Campbell the other day put a little nearer to the 300 m.p.h. which is the motorist's ideal of the moment. It is not wholly irrelevant to mention these records in other elements since they were both made with RollsRoyce engines adapted from those which hold the air speed record. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

FOR the first time Great Britain holds the three principal World's air records for we do not think anyone will cavil at that description of the three absolute records of speed, altitude and distance in a straight line. Though we are not directly concerned with them, it may not be out of place to mention also that a British boat holds the World's water speed record and a British motorcar the World's land speed record, which Sir Malcolm Campbell the other day put a little nearer to the 300 m.p.h. which is the motorist's ideal of the moment. It is not wholly irrelevant to mention these records in other elements since they were both made with RollsRoyce engines adapted from those which hold the air speed record.
