In February 1939 Alex Henshaw flew
from  London  to  Cape Town  in a
time of 39 hours and 23 minutes.

     This was the fastest time for any aircraft from
Britain to South Africa and reduced the ex-
isting record by 39 hours and 3 minutes.

                         After a stopover of only 24 hours, he
flew back to London in a time of 39
hours and 36 minutes. This reduced
the record for the return trip by 66 hours
and 42 minutes.                                             

 

These solo records still stand in 1999 - 60 years later.
