Hi,
I'm not sure where to post this question but I have a panel from an old aircraft that I would like to identify.
Can anyone help?

No idea really, but engineer's panel from an Andover? Let's hear some more guesses . . . . and, even better, the correct answer!

Looks to be the overhead panel from a Hawker Siddeley 125 (Dominie)..

@tm74sqn Thanks, I've unfortunately not been able to find any images of panels from an Andover.

@Timmo Thanks, I agree with you it looks very similar. Can anyone else help shed a little light on this?

Having shown the picture and spoken to one of 115 Sqns former finest he thinks not - I would go with a Domnie.

The fuel management section of the panel has a'Tip tank' selector switch. The aircraft is also a pressurized twin jet so my guess would be that it is from a Canberra.

Just a guess but there should be either a stock number like NSN- etc or some other on either the side of the unit or stamped onto the casing plus a manufacturer such as Plessey or Racal etc. usally with the Government 'Crowsfoot' mark on it

When these items are are removed for maintenance they have a paper tag (in the old days) nowadays a bar-code linking it to the stock/serial number (I.e. unique equipment reference ) such that certified maintenance can be carried out and the work being traceable to that equipment / aircraft / fitter parts used etc.
