Is this the first aircraft for sale (well ,cockpit)?

I have been asked by a good friend of mine to assist with the sale of two pieces of aviation history.

The cockpit and some front fuselage section from the following aircraft are available:


ZD240 VC10

XR810 VC10

As there are quite a few aircraft enthusiasts on here I thought it would be worth mentioning.

These cockpits have been cut from the airframe at below floor level and sit well at present on two railway sleepers. Both have been cut aft of the cockpit door by a couple of foot.

Please bear in mind that they are fairly well stripped and should be considered a serious project.However, this is a one off opportunity.

Collection is the buyers responsibilty and a lorry and hiab crane will be nescessary, they are located in North Hampshire.

I will get some pictures shortly.

PM me for details

800 each:lol:

Hi Corin,

If only I had the space I would have both of them. Are you aware that there is a very good VC10 website, where it might be worth posting the details. I will dig it out and send it on to you.

Not far off the mark, not unknown for the RAF to get spares from museums and long dead jets.
