I was down at Herne Bay at the weekend and decided to see what the latest is on the Pier demolition / reconstruction.

Whilst looking at info on the web I came across this information.


The first jet airspeed record and the first airspeed record over 600 mph was made between Herne Bay Pier and Reculver by H J Wilson who broke the World Air Speed Record at 606 mph in a standard Gloster Meteor Mark IV in November 1945


Can't remember seeing any memorial plaque or information on the sea front.

(Have done a search but can't find any other threads on this).
