Note from the Creator

I have always wanted to build the comet after watching Mustard's Comet video, so I built one but its a lackluster build, slapped on fuselage parts an' a microcockpit, and called myself an enjinir.

It took me eleven months to finally fix him, and now features a modeled cockpit interior and a proper engine, with a huge help thanks to the Caravelle project.

You see that nose? The Caravelle and Comet by coincidence has similar fuselage dimensions and similar nose design so I took the liberty to use the nose of the Caravelle and onto the Comet, saved me tons of hours of again modelling a cockpit that in the essence is identical.

Now to actually put information in this note from creator segment. Takeoff Speed is 212km/h or 114knts, Cruising speed at 11km or 36,000' is well above 800km/h. And stalling speed is around 200km/h with full trim support.

Now this is my first project with a functional emergency slides on AG4, which could be the most inappropriate project to pick to experiment with emergency slides since from my knowledge, Comets never had any emergency slides, so think of it as an experiment, see if it works both literal and for the model.

    @Vukasin123king Landing Gear and Slides use the recent smooth system only found in update 1.9.203 and later. If your copy of simpleplanes is legit, update it, if its an APK, go find the latest version of it somewhere.
