The beautiful de Havilland Comet was the world's first jet airliner. Its inaugural passenger-carrying flight in 1952 heralded a new era of luxurious air travel that was the envy of the world, but a series of tragic accidents saw its lead lost to the Americans with their Boeing 707.

Contents:
● The Comet Story
● Building the Comet
● Comet Anatomy
● Flying the Comet
● The Comet in Service
● Comet Accidents
● Rebirth of the Comet
● The Nimrod

Brian Rivas examines the design and operation of the Comet in civil and military service, including its later development the Nimrod, and offers a detailed close-up look at its construction. Fascinating insights are also given into the investigation of the fatal Comet crashes.
