Museum Aircraft

Percival Provost Cockpit

The Provost T1 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.  The cockpit was refurbished to a very high standard by its previous owner, Mr Philip Nussle, who kindly donated it to the Museum in September 2014.
