In an ideal world the aircraft would be fully restored and preserved as original but at least this way it will continue to exist and, as long as it exists then restoration to original remains a possibility, should a future generation appreciate such things.

An old thread but I recall watching huge lots of Military Handbooks in this auction.

I was wondering if anyone has any idea of where they all went? Collectors, dealers or anyone on the forum?

Of course if you make a Beverley into a holiday let, it needs all the facilities, heating lighting and flushing loo etc, plus all those health and safety features.

 

Including a Invalidlift  ground to freight & flight-deck.

Unless its a glamping one where the toilet block could be elsewhere

At least it’s been saved. 
I doubt that Duxford would have wanted it, they’ve enough large aircraft sitting outside to keep them busy for years.
