The 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.
