    Blind Flying Panel. What aircraft ??.

    Can anyone help with this one.
    Attached photos of an Air Ministry stamped BFP. Not the normal rectangular type. Part numebr 6A/616.
    I would have guessed something like an Anson but it appears to be a right hand panel ?
    What aircraft type would this have been fitted to ?

    AP1086 identifies 6A/616 as a Mark 1 BFP, so I guess fairly early.

      Just a bit confusing as its not rectangular. Rounded off on the right hand side

          I did look at that website but the panel I have has the rear fittings attached and the remains of instrument fasteners so I don't see how the panel could be spun around. It was clearly fitted and used as a 'right hand' panel.
          Possible trainer aircraft ??
