Plenty of room for luggage just don't open the bay doors accidentally.

From what I have heard the Comet was a very likeable aircraft that in a fair
number of cases still had plenty of life left in it. It just became too
expensive to run in comparison with newer airline aircraft, possibly a shame
the Mk.5 was never built.

"Whoosh" it went, over his head and "splash" against the wall behind him.

Never been accused of it myself, but sometimes it's possible to be too
subtle.

I wasn't even trying to be subtle :-)

Chris Wren used the joke several times in his cartoons in Air International
(the last time at the appearance of the Nimrod AEW version), that's why I
dutifully put his name behind the quotation, having put it between quotation
marks.
