Description

Model of Comet I, in BOAC colours, sectioned to show the lines of breakup of Comet G-ALYP over Elba, North Italy, January 1954. The model was used in the Comet accident report at the Court of Enquiry, Church House, Westminster. Due to lack of space and because of the size of the collection, more than 170,000 of the Science Museum's objects are stored in Blythe House, former headquarters of the Post Office Savings Bank. Many of these objects have never been on public display.
