A visitor from Sweden posted Sat March 3, 2012:
Incredible picture especially for film and 1960's night image

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu December 22, 2011:
Wow! Posted in 2008, why do foolish I only come across it now, nearly 2012! In my opinion even for today's standards a fine shot, but for '67 that must be an absolute cracker!
The atmosphere and the subject are great, highly intersting classic jetliner and airline, and the Swedish surroundings are beautiful too. Classic English delights, in a Swedish giftbox! Merry Christmas!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue June 28, 2011:
I love these crystal clear winter-night shots! Amazing how well the original slide has survived all those years.

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 28, 2010:
I'll bet getting at the engines to work on them
was a lot of "fun"!

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu April 8, 2010:
Wonderful photo of this classic and historic type of aircraft !

A visitor from Germany posted Wed December 9, 2009:
A fantastic Kodachrome shot of this rare and classic airliner. Beautiful winter light and very well preserved. A real historic document. Thank you for sharing it!

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Thu January 8, 2009:
A real nice aircraft -even being on the ground it feels like it's going to take off every second.

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed December 17, 2008:
Very nice photo, I wish for seen a Comet live one day.

A visitor from Portugal posted Tue August 5, 2008:
An outstanding tribute to an unique aircraft that payed a misfortunate toll for being a decade in advance over its competitors! The sharpness of the picture vividly enhances the restrained and handsome design of both the aircraft and its mid-sixties BEA livery. A collector's photo!

A visitor from Cyprus posted Thu July 31, 2008:
It's rare to see such clear shots. Bravo for this 40 year old beauty !

A visitor from Portugal posted Tue July 15, 2008:
A magnificent and detail-clear glimpse of a Series IV in its handsome BEA livery. The swedish police Anglia adds an unwilling british flavour to the scene...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed June 4, 2008:
Very evocative of the time. atmospheric lighting. like seeing period photos. is the comet the most beautiful aircraft ever built?

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Sat March 8, 2008:
Such an atmospheric photo, and so full of personality--I feel as if I am there!

A visitor from - posted Sat March 8, 2008:
Excellent quality for the picture

A visitor from Spain posted Fri March 7, 2008:
Wonderful picture of better days! Thanks for adding it, there should be more photos like this.

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 7, 2008:
Ohh!! The aircraft that started the commerical jet age!! Even though it's not the exact aircraft, this is a good reminder!!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri March 7, 2008:
A real nice looking air craft did not know that dehavilland made this aircraft

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 7, 2008:
Great Historical shot! I see the redesigned comet windows here after the explosive decompression issue was resolved. Too bad we don't see any of these flying around anymore in remote cargo ops like the 707....

A visitor from - posted Fri March 7, 2008:
Beautiful photo of a classic aircraft - it's so clear and well lit it almost looks like a movie set!

A visitor from Australia posted Sun March 2, 2008:
Still such a unique aircraft!...good photo by the way!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun March 2, 2008:
Very good quality photo for 67, the flood lights add real atmosphere too. The cars are still RHD and there is a Viscount in the background!
