Sep. 25, 1953 -” I Think I Have Beaten Duke” - Says Lithgow. Attempt On World Air Speed Record: Four times Lieut. Commander Michael Lithgow flashed at 50 ft. over the two mile course at Castle Idris, Tripoli, today in his blue Super-marine Swift - and after landing her said” I believe my speed was well above Squadron Leader Neville Duke's”. It was Lithgow's first attempt on the world air speed record of 727.6 m.p.h. set up by Duke in a rival Hawker Hunter. Later today he was making another run over the flare-marked desert course, regardless of his time and he is expected to make three more runs tomorrow
