Photo Comment

The finished (apart from some clocks) cockpit section looks truly magnificent and a testament to all those volunteer man-hours necessary to bring it back to such a pristine condition. Note the reg. plate (XA-NAR) visible in the centre of the control panel. This aircraft never actually flew with BOAC, rather will eventually be displayed in its true Mexicana markings at the Museum of Flight at BFI.
