LAND SPEED RECORD

JET-PROPULSION EXPERIMENT Rec. 12.30 p.m. LONDON, July 31. With a revolutionary jet-propelled car called "The Bomb," consisting mainly of one giant wheel 12 feet in diameter, Lieutenant Robert Morgan, experimental Fleet Air Arm pilot, is planning to raise the world's land speed record from 368 miles an hour to over 500 miles an hour,

The Daily Express says that the car, which is at present being built, will have a pear-shaped glass body 23 feet long and 15 feet high. Lieutenant Morgan will drive on a seat inside the wheel, which will revolve on oil bearings. The jetmotor will be on a similar principle to the V 2 rocket with liquid gases i for fuel.
