Remarks

The original Gee Bee R6 (later designated Q.E.D.) was designed and built as a two place transcontinental air racer specifically to complete in the MacRobertson Trophy Race - a transcontinental air race from London to Melbourne, Australia.  The orignal QED was powered by a 650 hp P&W R-1690 Hornet engine.  The original QED did not finish the MacRobertson Trophy Race and in 1939 was sold to Mexican competition pilot Francisco Sarabia. After setting a new speed record from Mexico City to New York City in 10 hrs 48 minutes, tradgedy struck and Sarabia was killed when the engine quit on take off from Washington D.C. and the aircraft plunged into the Potomac River.  The Q.E.D. was not badly damaged, and was restored and is now on display in Mexico as a tribute to Francisco Sarabia.
