Brooklands Museum houses historic aircraft including a Vickers Wellington bomber recovered from Loch Ness in 1985, a British Airways ConcordeG-BBDG (c/n 202), the UK’s first production Concorde, and now also owns the 40% scale Concorde model “G-CONC” displayed for many years as a gate guardian at Heathrow Airport, until movement in 2007. After restoration and repainting, the model was relocated for similar duty at Brooklands Museum’s public entrance off Brooklands Drive on 29 September 2012.

There are civil and military aircraft on display including a Vickers VanguardViscount 800 and Standard VC-10. The majority of exhibits were built at Brooklands or have close associations with the site. The VC-10 was built and first flown at Brooklands in 1964 and after airline service with British United as G-ASIX and later British Caledonian Airways, in 1974 it became the official VIP transport for the Sultan of Oman until retired and flown back to Brooklands on 6 July 1987 and donated to Brooklands Museum by the Sultan of Oman’s Royal Flight.

    What lovely photos! Thank you so much for sharing this – my in-laws were over for 6 weeks in the summer and we took loads of time off to explore with them. Brooklands was the one day I missed out on (and your photos are admittedly better than theirs)
