"Google HP Victor, DH Comet, Bristol Britannia, BAC 1-11, DH110/Sea Vixen, F-14, B-17, B-47, and so on. Many of these suffered early development problems"

Yes but at the same time there were thousands, tens of thousands, of other aircraft flying OK - the development problems were with one design.

There aren't any other fleets of airships around. The problems seem to be systemic looking back over 120 years - they're a dead end for almost all commercial uses
