The Comet XS235 did take part in the flypast at LHR as scheduled. I was
there - and a fantastic sight it was too!

I beleive the reason for the aircraft being retired is due to financial
reasons rather than the aircrafts airworthiness. Hopefully when the A&AEE
do get rid, a new owner will step in and keep the aircraft in flying
order.

Yours hopefully
