The Tilbury Flash, a racer plane built in Bloomington in the 1930s, was recovered in 1975 and restored by the Bloomington (IL) EAA Chapter. It is now on display at the McLean County Museum of History in Bloomington.

The plane set a world speed record for smallest class of planes and it flew in and won aircraft racing competitions, largely ones sponsored by governments interested in the military potential for small, highly maneuverable aircraft.
