Alex Henshaw's Percival Mew Gull won the 1938 King’s Cup Air Race at an average speed of 236.25mph over a triangular course of 1012.14 miles - the fastest ever recorded by a British aircraft. In February 1939 Henshaw flew the Mew Gull from England to South Africa and back in just 4 days 10 hours and 15 minutes, smashing the previous record. This record still stands today.
