Bloodhound scents a record, with help from CargoLogicAir

CargoLogicAir (CLA) has congratulated the Bloodhound SSC team following the first public run of its 1,000mph car, for which the carrier is the official cargo airline partner.
Representatives of the British all-cargo carrier joined 3,500 spectators at Cornwall Airport Newquay to witness Bloodhound successfully complete its first test run. It completed two runs along Newquay’s 9,000 foot runway, reaching a mere 210mph from a standing start in just eight seconds.
The team plans further, faster runs in 2018 speeds before making a world record attempt at Hakskeen Pan in South Africa. Bloodhound will be transported to and from South Africa on one of CLA’s Boeing 747 freighters.
Chief executive, Dmitry Grishin, said: “We wish to congratulate the Bloodhound SSC team on another successful step towards a new world land speed record. We are proud to be partnering with such an outstanding team of engineering professionals and will be following their progress with keen interest before they fly with CLA to South Africa for their world record attempt.”
