1950 DeHavilland Comet

1950 DeHavilland Comet #003117



1950 DeHavilland Comet original vintage advertisement. First seeing commercial service in 1952, the Comet quickly became a popular choice for Trans Atlantic flights. However, numerous fatal crashes would lead engineers to discover a serious metal fatigue in the design exacerbated by air pressure changes from which the Comet would never recover. The DeHavilland featured 4 Ghost Jet Engines, a cruising speed of 452 mph, and could accommodate 36 passengers.

This advertisement is based on an oil painting done by Cunlo in 1949 featuring a Comet on the tarmac at night in rich color tones. Truly a remarkable and rare collectible of aeronautic history.
