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.

Untitled (CSA - Ceskoslovenske Aerolinie)
Tupolev Tu-104A
Nicosia (NIC / LCNC) (closed)
Cyprus, December 24, 2006
Remark
Photographer
OK-MDE (cn 86601202) This aircraft crash-landed at Nicosia's airport, runway 14 while operating flight CSA 531 from Damascus on 29 August 1973. It overran the runway and veered to the right, 150 m short of the runway end. Thank God no fatalities were reported among the 70 passengers and crew. Since then, the wreckage is situated at the actual place of the accident, 150 m from the edge of the runway. The flag of the former Czechoslovakia is still visible on the fin!
