This would appear to be a mock-up of the former Farnborough F1 turboprop, which is now known as the Kestral JP100?

I do wonder how it ended up dumped at this now derelict facility?

The picture is from a so-called "Urban Exploration" forum.

(I didn't take the picture, I don't advocate this illegal "Urban Exploration" pastime that apparently involves breaking-and-entering.)

Incredible! Thank you for sharing this detailed look at a relic of an amazing era - the White Heat of Technology indeed.

Re: the first photo from inside NGTE, here is the same mockup of the Farnborough F1 turboprop at the Farnborough Airshow in July 2000 on the same white base.
