Quote from: PR19_Kit on December 29, 2008, 01:40:35 PMSomeone will be suggesting that the Boeing 707 was the 'World's First Jetliner' soon........
Quote from: Maverick on January 29, 2009, 06:30:06 PMTinlail, the "B-57" was merely a reconfigured Canberra with the B-57A being an analog of the Canberra B.2 Bomber. Later B-57s (eg B, G, etc) merely translated the cockpit into a tandem config and added some guns to the wings. To suggest that the type is a Martin design is insulting to the English Electric company in my opinion, although you've got the smiley afterwards so I'm hoping it's a tongue-in-cheek comment.Regards,Mav

In which case they know wrongly.It was, is, and ever more will be the De Havilland COMET!And that goes for the first jet to inaugurate Trans-Atlantic travel too......

Quote from: joncarrfarrelly on January 30, 2009, 09:26:36 AMIt's a joke, Son... I say... I say... a joke.The Jetliner is the only jet airliner that was actually named Jetliner. Do ya get it now?
