Canberra Cockpit Arrives

On 10 January, the cockpit of English Electric Canberra B2 WE113 was delivered to the Museum from its previous owner in Cambridgeshire. Following an agreement with its new owners, Mr and Mrs Joseph Marsden, the cockpit will now be kept at the Museum (Joe was a former Canberra and Vulcan pilot). It is anticipated that our visitors will eventually be able to look inside the aircraft’s front and rear cockpits through the entry/exit hatch on the fuselage. The Museum is delighted to display this particular aircraft as it served with No 245 Squadron at RAF Tangmere in the early 1960s.
