Do you mean the Comet 4? Along with the American Super Constellation, two of the most beautiful aircraft in the world, IMNSHO! Viscounts corroded and failed in flight, one on finals at Heathrow, (anyone remember the Hawaiian airliner that lost its' roof?) and Comet Two's suffered catastrophic fatigue failures whilst pressurized, introducing the world of aviation to ROUND or OVAL windows with no stress risers. Please, if you are going to take shots at British Aviation, be specific!
