State of build on the 22nd May 2000

The pilot's cockpit is nearing completion with the magnetic compass, the repeater compass and DF meter still to be fitted (they are on display in the museum). The Beam Approach equipment is installed under the pilot's floor but the cables connecting the system to the pilot's side panel have yet to be assembled.

The trim unit and flap controls to the right of the pilots seat are now fitted and sensors installed on most of the controls such that they could be connected up to a simulator in the future. Cable ducting, oxygen economiser, Flight Engineers panel and Flight Engineer's/Second Pilot's seat are fitted to the Starboard side.
