Just to clear out a bit, the last commercial flight flown by a Comet was in late 80's with Dan-Air, I think it was a DHComet 4C, G-BDIX or BDIW, and it was a flypast over some english airports. Besides that indeed the A&AEE Comet the the very last Comet to fly, once again it was a DHComet 4C and that was not long time ago. I think there was group trying to preserve this plane in airworthy condition, that sounds lovely. Not really a Comet but with some Comet background and like some of our friends said we still have the Nimrod, well at least the wing can't renegate their origins right?
I nerver saw many Comet's but I think the last time I saw one landing at Lisbon was 1985, and that was from DanAir.
CV990, the Maserati of the skies!
