G-EBGG  Bristol 84 Bloodhound               (c/n  6222)


                                The Bloodhound was developed from the famous Bristol Fighter series as more or less a test
                                bed for the new Bristol Jupiter V engine which developed some 436 h.p.  To test the reliability
                                of the engine the aircraft made a series of flights between Filton and Croydon in 1926.  These
                                culminated on 8 March of that year, the machine having completed 25,074 miles for a total air
                                time of 225 hours and 54 minutes with no down time of the engine.  Quite a feat in those days.
