Aviation fans flying high
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.
