    RE: Hendon

    Sugar had a pretty good cockpit, so-so navigator's station, good wireless ops station, so-so nose compartment and no engineer's panel whatsoever. The rest of the fuselage fittings were pretty scarce, but she still had a lovely atmosphere inside. Structuraly she's supposed ot be in quite poor condition, so I doubt they'd ever hang her up like an Airfix kit anyway!

        With regard to the point about the TSR.2 being 'gutted',it was actually never completed.The airframe has never come to life for so much as a ground run-the engines were yet to be installed when the programme was dropped like a hot brick.I'm lead to belive that there is still plenty of stuff inside her though,but the lack of engines would ofcourse mean a considerable weight saving.
