This aircraft operated the last scheduled "Prop" service from New York to Ireland December 21/22, 1960 - the Boeing 720 jet had arrived.

BOAC
De Havilland DH-106 Comet 1
In Flight
UK - England, 1951
Remark
Photographer
G-ALYP (cn 06003) The first production Comet 1 (nearest) first flew on 9 January 1951. It was delivered to BOAC on 13 March 1952 and performed the world's first scheduled jet airliner flight Heathrow-Johannesburg on 2 May 1952. It crashed on 10 January 1954 after structural failure near Elba after take-off from Rome. DH's Comet 1 prototypes G-ALVG and G-ALZK (far) complete the then world-beating formation of this, the most beautiful jetliner built. Each has a slightly different fin scheme. Obtained from DH 50 years ago.
