Victor K.2 Simulator at Newark Air Museum, 27th September 2014; author

On Saturday 5th October 2013, the Newark Air Museum took delivery of its latest exhibit, in the shape of a Handley Page Victor cockpit. This particular Victor cockpit is believed to have been built as an airframe; however before being allocated a serial number it was converted by Redifon into a Victor simulator / procedures trainer. It was once used to train Victor crews at RAF Marham in Norfolk and it has been placed on long term loan at the museum. After making the short delivery journey to the museum from its previous location near Lincoln, the Victor cockpit will be repainted in representative markings of the type (and as you can see had already been painted white when I visited). The cockpit is internally complete and formed a significant part of the display at the annual Tribute to the V-Force event at its site on the former RAF Winthorpe airfield in eastern Nottinghamshire.
