Mark Buruchian and his son, Kevin, stand shoulder to shoulder between their respective Comets. Mark’s hull No. 3952 is white and well-kept. Kevin’s hull, No. 4088, is a faded yellow patina showing its age, but it’s plenty tricked out for an old Comet. Colored lines crisscross the cockpits of each. Dad has his preference for how controls run. Kevin’s is a work in progress, subtly changing from year to year, as Comets do.
