De-Havilland Comet 4 by Edward Denyer

Time has passed since November 1992 when the familiar colours of Dan-Air left the aviation scene. The Airline operated from 1953 – 1992. Here is one of the Comet 4’s it operated.
Seen at the ’Museum of Flight", East Fortune, Nr. Edinburgh, Scotland.

    Ah yes a fine looking aircraft and the worlds first jet airliner.
    Another first for British design, if only they made the windows round instead of the square design things might have been different (thats where the fatigue started at the corners).
    The trouble is that by being the first and pushing the boundary’s, you have to take the consequences.

    The design led eventualy to the Nimrod and is still in use by the RAF today.
    Such a streamlined design by having the engines within the wing instead of just bolting them on underneath.

    A great shot, and thanks for sharing.

  • Thank you for your comment and dialogue Mark, much appreciated. – Ted
