The Royal International Air Tattoo Flying Display - Sunday 21st July 1996

DTEO Boscombe Down de Havilland DH106 Comet 4C

[DTEO Boscombe Down Comet 4C]

Ahhhh...a Comet. The only one left flying in the World is Comet 4C XS235 "Canopus" operated by DTEO Boscombe Down, Wiltshire, England as a navigation trials aircraft. It is due for retirement shortly. This year's display was magic; just like in 1994 there were plently of steep climbs and 90 degree banked turns - wonderful stuff. There's also a picture of it landing.
