The 190 fighters tried a run at the de Havilland, but she ran away from them before they could begin to cut her off.
Mr. de Havilland built his first machine early in 1910, at his own cost.
The ship that stood with idling props was a de Havilland Mosquito.
In 1893 Mr. de Havilland first coached the Eight, and, since this date, has had an unbroken series of wins.
No special attention was given the de Havilland except by the crew assigned to take her over.
