I wonder what country that display is located in?

IIRC it is in the factory at Toulouse. You used to be able to get tours around the A330/340 production line and the Concorde.

A few years ago we needed a section of fuselage frame for a repair on a BAe 146. The manufacturer could not supply a repair section, only a complete frame. So a 12ft dia complete frame arrived.
We cut out a 3 or 4 ft. section to use, but then stores could not have the rest returned as it was incomplete so we tied it to the hangar wall for future use, complete with the paperwork.
I wonder if it is still there in H21 at Exeter.
