I suggest that you READ what was written. Viscounts corroded, mostly in the belly area, and it was not checked, found or fixed until there were a number of failures. The Hawaiian airliner that "lost its' roof " was a victim of corrosion and poor maintenance. To re-state:- Comet Two's with square windows failed at the rear toilet windows, fatigue. RAF Transport Command bought quite a few retrofitted with round windows and they saw many years of good service. Come 4's were a much improved aircraft and also saw many years of service, esp. in Africa. Public opinion was against them, even though they were a different bird.
