Wow, on my 6th birthday too..plan to go this summer for one last trip (last one in 2000). Remember seeing Comets over our house in NY on final for IDL in the 50s so this is really special

Old picture but a good one!!!

A visitor from - posted Tue November 25, 2014:
Very classic and beautiful... but the 787 nose and other things on it came from the drawing of the Dornier 728...

Beautiful photo.

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 29, 2014:
That almost looks unreal

A visitor from United States posted Wed May 21, 2014:
Does anybody know what happened to this airframe? Was it broken or did dH reinforce it and make it a Comet 4? The history of the Comet is as fascinating as they come. It has triumph and tragedy intertwined!

Great Shot for great plane

A visitor from Portugal posted Wed August 28, 2013:
Great photo. It's clear where Boeing got its 787 nose design from.

A visitor from - posted Wed April 17, 2013:
What's going on with the bottom of the wings? Are those speed brakes?

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 25, 2012:
Nostalgic,tragic and mysterious. A perfect capture. Only 1 Comet 3 was built!?

A visitor from - posted Wed December 12, 2012:
Absolutely beautiful, haunting almost.

Fine picture.
But, somehow, there

For the person from Mexico - Planes, ships etc. are referred to as "she", since they "carry" people just like a woman carries a baby. Great picture of a great plane!

A visitor from - posted Mon November 28, 2011:
The aeroplane setting the standards... and the nose shape is rediscovered at the Do728 / SSJ100 / B787...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun October 16, 2011:
The light beautifully captures the shape and form of the Comet's wings and fuselage. An iconic 50's aircraft showing off it's classic lines to great effect

Great photogaph of a beautifully designed aircraft. I flew on one of the Aerolineas Argentinas Comet-4C April '65 from EZE to what is now JFK. Two stops: Sao Paulo for passengers and Port of Spain for breakfast and fuel. It was a fantastic trip!!! I miss seeing this plane!

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri April 1, 2011:
Why "she"..?
anyway Lovely picture...!

A visitor from United States posted Fri April 1, 2011:
There's something scary about this airplane, like if you ran into an alien on the street... odd!

A visitor from - posted Fri April 1, 2011:
Beautiful and yet so so tragic. Every time I work a piece of metal to break it apart I think of this one airplaine.

Incredible Aerodynamics.

Ohhh! 5 stars! Beauty beauty beauty!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun January 2, 2011:
She's beautiful, isn't she? Like a science fiction concept of an amazing flying machine from a distant future. Even today, the Comet looks breathtaking - and this is a particularly lovely photo of her as well.

Pictures of this aircraft flying are very rare! Well done and thanks for sharing!
