creation of C.J.H. MacKenzie-Kennedy, the Kennedy Giant biplane bomber
was aptly named. A huge aircraft for its time, it was also a giant
design failure. Manufactured in Hayes, England by the Gramophone
Company, Ltd., it was constructed out in the open because none of the
Northolt Aerodrome hangars were large enough to contain it. Despite its
four engines, the Kennedy Giant was so underpowered that once airborne
it could do little more than fly in a straight line.
