Avi­a­tion fans fly­ing high

Surrey Herald/News - - NEWS -

MORE than 1,000 vis­i­tors flew along to Brook­lands Mu­seum for its avi­a­tion day on Sun­day. The mu­seum’s vis­i­tors were look­ing to the skies as the whole of the Wey­bridge site was de­voted to all things avi­a­tion. En­gine run demon­stra­tions from some of the mu­seum’s air­craft col­lec­tion, an over­head air dis­play from a Tiger Moth, trade stalls, ex­hibitors, open cock­pits and a host of or­gan­i­sa­tions from var­i­ous fields were all avail­able for aero­nau­ti­cal en­thu­si­asts. Paul Ste­wart, mar­ket­ing and PR man­ager for Brook­lands, said: “We were blessed with blue skies and a turnout of 1,500 vis­i­tors. “Vet­er­ans from Bomber Com­mand were here to chat and sign mem­o­ra­bilia in the hangar un­der­neath the Brook­lands Wellington – this is the only Wellington Bomber air­craft in ex­is­tence that saw ac­tive ser­vice in the Sec­ond World War.” Young­sters were also en­ter­tained with pedal planes, flight sim­u­la­tors and work­shops. And at the neigh­bour­ing Mercedes-Benz World land­ing strip, a he­li­copter and some light air­craft dropped in and were made avail­able for vis­i­tors to in­spect and chat to the pi­lots.

More than a thou­sand peo­ple en­joyed Brook­lands Avi­a­tion Day on Sun­day.
