De Havilland Comet C.2 (XK699)


Lyneham, United Kingdom (GB)
De Havilland Comet C.2 (XK699) preserved as gate guardian at RAF Lyneham, the operational base for all RAF operated Comets. The Comet 2 was a development of the Comet 1, featuring a slightly larger wing, and more powerful Rolls-Royce Avon engines, which improved the aircraft's range and performance. The Comet 2s were allocated to the RAF, where they were known as the Comet Mk. 2s. Eight Comet C.Mk 2 transport aircraft and two Comet T.Mk 2 crew trainers were delivered to the RAF in 1955.
