      Great pictures, I hope these Comets all survive for many years to come, keeping airliners outside is far from ideal. The Duxford Comet has recently required some mojor corrosion repairs, I believe it was nearly a lost cause.
      I really think Cosford should keep their very rare Comet 1a inside, you can't tell me that this aircraft is less significant than the Lincoln.
      Props are best!

            I just happened to catch the video for 'Wings of a Dove' by the 80's ska-pop group 'Madness' just now on MTV. It looked remarkably like they shot most of it on the Dan Air Comet?

            Anyone know ???

              Beautiful photos of a beautiful aircraft. There are too few Comets (and indeed other classic airliners) preserved, when you consider the keenness for preserving historic military types. It is completely out of proportion, the airliners are as much a part of aviation history as the Lancaster, the Spitfire, Hurricane etc, but read any preservation and historic magazine and all you get are warbirds, all aviation museums have warbirds but very few have airliners. Those which do should be supported.
              I couldn't agree more.
              It's very good that the science museum manages to keep its airliners inside, but very sad & frustrating to see so many other significant types left out to rot. Particularly the Comet 1 at Cosford & G-APDB at Duxford, the only survivor of the two Comets that made the first ever scheduled transatlantic jet service. Also the worlds oldest Viscount at Duxford.
              Props are best!
