Percival Provost Cockpit Donation

A Percival Provost T1 cockpit section has recently been donated to the Museum. The Provost was the last piston engined basic trainer to be operated by the RAF.  The service history of the Museum’s aircraft (XF840) is unclear, although it is thought that it may have been used in covert operations during the Cold War. For the last 25 years, the cockpit section has been privately owned by Philip Nussle who has restored the interior to a very high standard.

The Museum intends to restore the fuselage and canopy to display condition and install equipment to enable the cockpit to be used as a side-by-side simulator for our visitors.
