This is the Signed original Watercolour painting by Wilf Hardy.

The inset picture shows how the early test version of the De Havilland Comet was 25 feet shorter than the successful long range Mark 4C version.

The plane went into service in October 1958 shortly after creating a record of 6 hours 16 minutes for a flight from New York to Hatfield. The main painting is a fantastic example of Wilf Hardy's aviation art.

From an instalment in the series Wings Around the World published in Look and Learn # 756 10th July 1976.
