My reply was as follows:
Please justify HOW you think this post was placed in the wrong forum and how you think that it is a non- aviation topic - or are you just ignorant of airliner history?
In case you are, John Cunningham was the Chief Test Pilot for de Havilland on the Comet series of AIRLINERS and later the TRIDENT.
His expertise and pioneering work with the Comet had a significant impact on both the development of jet AIRLINERS and AIRLINES.
Perhaps you should ask to be relieved of your position as a moderator until you have learnt some airline and AIRLINERS history,
Just a friendly suggestion,
