These Cold War-era Tu.134A-3 instrument panels reside in the collection of our friend Charles Darby of New Zealand.
According to Charles:
"Here's something a bit different -- a Tu.134A-3. I don't know much about it's history, either in VVS service or after it went civil, other than -- rather obviously -- with UTAir as the attached photo shows. Also attached is a shot of the instrument panels of RA-65977 while it was in service -- unusual to get such a photo then get the actual panels later. I am still missing the two instruments from the left panel and one from the right, but have now fitted the fuel quantity gauge that was missing when the centre panel photo was taken"
