Sadly the largest I think you can find that will fit your board is 16
Mbit. Look for the part number SST49LF160C-33-4C-NHE.

I'm afraid SST have the largest PLCC package chips at 16 Mbit. The
market demands smaller package chips, so while it's technically
trivial none of the flash manufacturers make larger PLCC package

If you have a budget you could buy an Artec dongle (150EUR+VAT) and a
PLCC adapter from me (80EUR+VAT) to get 4x32Mbit which is rewritable
through a USB port, but it is a bit costly.
