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!

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.
