TS492 was struck off charge in November 1959. Photo by John Fricker.

The fuselage of this former BOAC, Airwork, Falcon and Silver City Airways Hermes was a familiar part of the Gatwick scenery for many years. Rescued from the scrap man in 1962, it was used as a cabin trainer by British United, Caledonian//BUA and British Caledonian until presented to the British Airports Authority at Gatwick in 1976 for use as a smoke evacuation trainer. Moved to Duxford in 1981 and restored over many years, it has been displayed since 2006 in its original BOAC colours as part of the British Airliner Collection.
