See this pic http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/application ... mgtype=jpg
Looks to be maybe something to do with the airspeed indicator it has a small propeller that drives a cable like a car speedometer.


Not got a problem with title the video didn't work at first so looked it up

I think it would be a bit close to the prop wash to give a reliable air speed indication. Maybe a ram air generator to power modern electrical instruments?

One Olympus 301 has twice the power of a complete F1 starting grid.
XM655 has four of them, all serviceable.

I stand corrected and in the corner. ^^ Over there. Had a look at the other picks on the CAA site and see what you mean about it being too close

Think you're spot on there Sooty. On closer inspection it does look like a small generator. Air Britain site has a picture of NE with its wings folded and you get a good view of it.

'Misleading' It was nothing more than a typo, Errors can't be termed as misleading due to the lack of intent
