Airborne Magnette

This photograph features in a December 1935 edition of The Autocar and shows N.K. Crawford’s airborne MG Magnette (JW 5703) rapidly ascending Nailsworth Ladder in the Cotswolds. This excellent image was taken by an unknown photographer during the course of the MCC’s London-Gloucester trial. Author of the book ‘Wheelspin’, C.A.N May was driving an identical Magnette (No. 53) and this very photo appears in his book while a sketch of the scene adorns its front cover – see the second image.
