The pioneering jet airliner. Sometimes it does not pay to be a pioneer. The Americans learned valuable lessons from the tragic disasters, the French borrowed the nose design for their Caravelle and the British industry never really recovered.

I like how the fuselage is shown as it fills most of the photo's frame, thus allowing the viewer to get an idea of the size of the aircraft. Laying a yellow yardstick on the ground in these photos would be super !

Many thanks !
