1963 De Havilland DH106 Comet 4C 'Canopus', serial number 6473, G-CDPA, formerly XS235, was the last Comet to remain flying and is now the only surviving Comet that is capable of running under its own power. It wears the colours that it had on retirement from military service with the Defence Test & Evaluation Organisation at Boscombe Down. It's seen here undergoing a 'fast taxi run' at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome Proving Ground (formerly RAF Bruntingthorpe) during the 'Cold War Jets' aircraft exhibition day on 27th May 2018.
