The Heston Type 5 Racer G-AFOK, designed by A.E.Hagg and G.Cornwell, was built at Heston during 1939-40, but crashed there on its maiden flight on June 12, 1940.
The 2,300 hp Napier Sabre-powered racer was sponsored by Lord Nuffield for a British attempt on the world speed record. A second was never completed.
