Dispite the title, I'm pretty sure that cockpit is a Viscount not a Vanguard. The Vanguard's is wider, has a wider centre console with 2 sets of throttles, and the cockpit windows are different.

Saw Argosy G-BEOZ at LBA in the late 70's, shortly followed by BAF carvair (probably G-ASHZ). I think they were transporting horses - must have been a big race on :)
