The DeHavilland Comet was the first production commercial jet airliner that went into service in 1952. The earliest production aircraft designated G-ALYP was loaned to the British Overseas Airways Company and inaugurated the first scheduled overseas flight from London to Johannesburg with fare-paying customers on-board. Much of the design is similar to the commercial airliners seen around the world today. The Comet had four turbojet engines (turbofan are now the norm for reduced noise and better fuel economy), which made the aircraft much more efficient at higher altitudes of flight than its propeller-driven contemporaries. -R.J.H Wanhill (2002). Milestone Case Histories in Aircraft Structural Design. National Aerospace Laboratory.

This is the closest replica i think there is right now, it flies terribly because of all panels that the cockpit consists of, the engines had to be rocket powered since the others was underpowered, this means that you have to enable infinite fuel unfortunately. Otherwise it is a pretty cool aircraft.
