Proud to see Sudan was making trips from Khartoum to London in those early days.
I read that those comets though crashed often. Joe Sutter, the head engineer for the team that built the first Boeing 747 had declared that when it came to building airplanes:"If it looks right, it flies right!"
I can't say that this comet "looked right."
