Marathon Parts at the Museum of Berkshire Aviation
The largest Marathon part to survive - ex-Derby Airways fuselage section.
This plate originates from Marathon c/n 120, a Mk.1 built as G-AMGO. It was later converted at Woodley into an RAF T.11 navigation trainer as XA267 and served with No.1 ANS at Topcliffe, with the individual code letter 'Q'. Retired to 10 MU at Hullavington, XA267 was sold for scrap to Aviation Traders (Engineering) Ltd of Southend in January 1959 and it seems likely that this maker's plate was 'liberated' at this time.
Propeller de-icing fluid tank. This would have been mounted vertically on the port side of the aft fuselage.
The Museum also holds two unique Palmer-manufactured Marathon mainwheels, one with tyre fitted.
