On this Friday’s episode of Northwest Now, you’ll travel with host Tom Layson to Everett to learn more about a team of volunteers painstakingly restoring a de Havilland Comet from the 1950s. Project Comet tells the story of the restoration effort, but also of the Comet’s rise, and fall as Britain and the U.S. competed to dominate the new jet aviation industry.
Next, journey with us as we explore the Boeing Museum’s restoration center to see the work being done. Hear from a local author who has written about the dawn of the jet age and delve into what boils down to a few crucial minutes that set the course for decades of growth of Western Washington.
