Photo Comment

Arrived from Cranfield on 9th May 1967 for the BHAM. Following the demise of that museum, the aeroplane was moved to a new site on the western side of the airport as a founder of the Historic Aircraft Museum (Southend). The museum can be seen under construction in the background and opened in May 1972. Clearly seen is the Lancaster nose (from the pilot's windscreen forward) ex-TW911, fitted in the late 40s/early 50s.
