EFA HUD Chassis
Ian Carter/Peter Gibbs
This is an empty Chassis casting for the Eurofighter Pilot’s Display Unit
The photo shows a chassis with a mounting point missing and replaced by foot to maintain stability when placed on a flat surface. This chassis damage may have happened during vibration testing; there was a redesign of mounting points after failure in early qualification.
The casting may have been made by Kent Alloys a local company who made many such castings.
