In storage for 15 -20 years so a few things needed replacing and updating but it's ready to go for it's re-maiden...as is the Concorde in the background.

Interesting fact.
The round windows in the roof of the 3 passenger cabins were escape hatches! There were small interconnecting doors ways between the cabins but Imperial Airways insisted the single rear door would be inadequate in the case of fire as there was no access forward to the cockpit which had its own door.
