Bloodhound SSC is making its first public run at Cornwall airport in Newquay, with driver Andy Green attempting to take the vehicle to 200mph.

Final checks are made before the engines are started on the Bloodhound 1,000mph supersonic racing auto during its first public run at Cornwall Airport, near Newquay.

In the pilot seat was Andy Green, a former fighter pilot in the Royal Air Force, and current land speed record holder.

Android 8 .1 (API level 27) adds two new hardware-feature constants, FEATURE_RAM_LOW and FEATURE_RAM_NORMAL, to Package Manager. As the reviews have indicated, it possesses a great camera, latest Android software and will provide incredible performance.

The Bloodhound SSC has been created to reach a top speed of 1,000mph, says the London Evening Standard, but will only reach 200mph in today's "slow-speed" trial.

It's finally happened. Nine years after the Bloodhound project was announced at London's Science Museum, the supersonic auto has completed its first test runs.

This is a pretty significant moment for the team behind the Bloodhound as this is their first public test, lest hope everything goes well for them and they can move onto the next stage of testing. It's all in preparation for the Bloodhound's eventual 1000-mph world-record attempt, which will take place on a dry lake bed in South Africa in 2020.

In the meantime, it seems that the hidden features in the Switch OS version 4 .0 are more interesting than the flaunted features. Anyone who owns a GameCube controller will know that its buttons don't match up exactly to a Nintendo Switch controller .

Green set the record at 1227,98 km/h 20 years ago. They just started to flicker with flame - very sort of Formula One, but in a proper high-speed auto.

Today's test just used Bloodhound SSC's EJ200 jet engine.

In development since 2008, it is being tested at Newquay airport at speeds of up to 200mph. The fuel pump driving oxidiser to the rocket motor is now powered by a 550bhp supercharged Jaguar V8 engine, but the team is investigating the possibility of replacing it with an electric motor - battery technology has come a long way since the days of Thrust SSC.

LeBron makes rare point in Cavs NBA win
Smith struggled in his initial start, scoring three points on 1-for-8 shooting, including 1-for-7 on 3-pointers. Chicago, however, nailed 17 three-pointers overall.

At Newquay it ran on Dunlop tyres from an English Electric Lightning fighter, but they wouldn't last five seconds at high speed - the real wheels, which will turn at 10,200 rpm, are made of solid aluminium. Green has to throttle back the jet, which will have enough fuel in the system to keep Bloodhound going up to 200mph.
