Jason happened to be heading out for lunch when he saw the Comet fly over and head towards Flabob.  He called me because I have a Comet ARF I plan to build soon and we drove over to see it.  What an amazing aircraft.

This is the only flyable Comet replica in the world and it returned today to the location where it was built, Flabob airport in Riverside.  It was previously located at the Chino Planes of Fame museum but will now be on display at Flabob.
