A gem from the Pathe archive - if you can stand seeing a Lincoln being toasted! I wonder which one?

If you look carefully, you can see the Carvair production line in the background at one point, plus another Lincoln on the dump with an odd nose and yellow paint in funny places (I await a technical explanation!), plus what I think may be two Tudor fuselages.

Corrected now - Obviously Youtube's fault and not my fat fingers...

That other Lincoln may be RF533, a former testbed that ended its days at Stansted.
