Great to see a colour photo of a Comet 1! This plane was the one later put in the water tank for metal fatigue testing.

Good focus, good colour values considering it was taken in 1953, interesting action around the aircraft, the whole scene depicts what flying was all about in the 1950's/before outlandish 'security' was imposed on the flying public!
