Despite the fact that Lufthansa allocated a Boeing 737-500 as their main training aircraft in 2011 the Viscount is still put to occasional use by the engineering apprentices and is seen here inside one of the maintenance hangars with an Airbus A330 in the background.

Only the outer Dart engines are fitted and sadly, neither are capable of being run.

This view shows the No.1 port outer Dart RDa7 Mark 525F engine with the cowlings and propeller removed.

This type of Dart engine still has a commercial value in supplying spare parts for overhaul and re-use, so it is nice to see one preserved on each wing.

Dummy engines will presumably be fitted to the two inner positions at the museum.

A view of the fuselage in its cradles supported on large hydraulic jacks.

The amount of equipment and technical expertise available from the Lufthansa Engineering team must have made this project a straight forward process especially when the use of special Vickers tooling was no longer available.

Even the undoing of bolts would not be easy as most modern aircraft are assembled using Unified Fine (UNF) threads or metric threads with American (AF) or Metric (MM) spanners and sockets, rather than the British Standard Fine (BSF), British Standard Whitworth (BSW) and British Association (BA) bolts used by Vickers.
