De Haviland Comet
Britain¿s de Havilland DH.106 Comet was the first ever commercial jet airliner and 2022 represents the 70th anniversary of the type¿s introduction to service. Including prototypes, just 114 Comets were produced but despite early problems and three highly publicised accidents, it redefined global travel expectations and went on to remain in commercial use until the early 1980s. It also spawned a military variant, the Hawker SiddeleyNimrod, which continued to serve the RAF in the maritime patrol role until 2011. This eagerly anticipated special publication from the team behind Airliner World and Aviation Archive magazines celebrates the Comet in all its forms.
