cool!

Massive flap area for slow landing speeds. The Comet cruised at around 400 knots. First flight just 4 years after World War 2 ended.

Fun fact, Chris & CHRIS ROBEY. The Hawker 800 has the same wing plan form. Different dimensions, of course! Cheers!!

Nice. Swept wing but un-swept tail. That had to hold up the speed a bit.

The revised model with round windows.

Nice Comet 4B !

MORE FUN FACT? Could it be the reason for the wing similarity is that the Comet was made by DeHavilland and the Hawker is actually a name some dope applied to the DeHavilland 125 business jet?

The Comet 4s did their job well for that era.
