The forward fuselage and cockpit section is now kept at the Cavan and Leitrim museum in Dromad . There are a few pics of the cockpit here http://www.flyinginireland.com/forum/vi ... f=1&t=4102

The pictures are resized on that link due to the forum changes....though they should display correctly if you click on them.
