Boeing 247D: Men and their toys (XI).

Mildenhall, 19th October 1934. The famous Colonel Roscoe Turner took his Boeing 247D “Warner Bros. Comet” to England to take part in the now mythical MacRobertson Trophy Air Race (he came 3rd). Always in search of publicity, Turner is here showing his wife a model of his aircraft.

Just wondering what/who was his greatest love….
