Hawker Siddeley HS.125 Srs.3B

07/07/2007. Remarks by Johan Visschedijk: "This was one of two aircraft delivered to Qantas as Boeing 707 flight-crew training aircraft, the other was VH-ECF (c/n 25069). The flight deck was fitted with the 707 naviagation equipment and some other systems. Also the rudder forces could be influenced to simulate the rudder forces needed in the 707 in the event of an engine failure. This aircraft was withdrawn from use in 1981 and is now derelict at The Oaks, New South Wales, Australia."
