Scotland’s National Museum of Flight is home to a wonderful collection of aircraft, both military and civilian. The star attraction of the museum is undoubtably Concorde G-BOAA, but there’s plenty of other aircraft to see and enjoy too, and we certainly didn’t get around all four hangars plus all of the outside exhibits in a single day.
Hangar 4 provides shelter for this Boeing 707 – the only one surviving in the UK. The cockpit itself is closed off behind a rather scratched piece of perspex, but there’s a narrow gap just wide enough to poke a lens through to take selective shots of the various controls that the crew used in the 1960’s to fly this aircraft.
