In 1957 the last real “race” for the Bendix trophy was won by Capt. Kenneth D. Chandler (my father). The subsequent two “races” were not competitions but simply new speed records, involving one plane and crew, so no actual race. I have pictures of Kenneth Chandler including the trophy if you wish to add them to your web page.
