  2. Good footage of John Cobb and his 'Laker" (Streamliner). they mention of the loss of his life in the water speed attempt. It is interesting that the boat was recovered, along with John Cobb's body for internment. And the boat was restored from the parts found on the bottom of the Lock.

    The water speed record is definitely the most dangerous one to achieve. Two of the top record holders, John Cobb and Donald Campbell died while trying to set records.
