Default IF200 BOAC Comet IV

BOAC is not something I would normally collect nor are most models that are pre-1980 but I make a few exceptions. While the Comet may not have been a success, I appreciate it's history.

Great pictures, thanks for sharing. I've also thought about getting this Comet due to the history involved, but haven't done it yet.

I love BOAC! Nice shiny wings on the Inflight version, with none of the tarnishing that plagues some polished models during manufacturing. I have the ARD version, and the wings have a very tarnished look.

Great contrast with the Pan Am 707-320B.

Nice addition to your collection. I have the Qantas leased BOAC Comet 4, however, mine does not have the forward antenna like your copy
