ruled ot the Facel Vega but there is a connection with Facel and the pillarless coupe "stablemate"

that stablemate's name can easily be worked out if you know your aircraft

I didn't even know there was an aircraft called a Caravelle :!: It has an interior like this

Think more along the lines of something that was developed in Hertfordshire :!: and you'll not be far off.

This is for the stablemate's name.... which hopefully with all the other clues will finally lead to the revealing of the original whats this then vehicle with the "mushroom" knobs!

Just did an edit on that one James you are quite right.

One link between the Vulcan, and our mystery aircraft is that both are on display at the National Museum of Flight at East Fortune!
