Thanks to David H, who organised the day, Chris F and Peter S, who were our unbelievably knowledgeable guides, ten of us ‘lads’ from Sutton Nonsuch Rotary had a terrific day yesterday at Brooklands Museum, the site of the UK’s first race track and the construction site of something like 18,000 civil and military aircraft (I’m sure Peter or Chris will tell me if that’s wrong!)
After a welcomed coffee, we split into two groups of five and our official Brooklands volunteers took us on our separate tours. I was with Chris’ group as were Barry M, Roger F and Malcolm D. Those with Peter were Diego, John N, John C and Steve B.We all met up for a modest lunch at 1pm and resumed our tour, a lot less hungry, afterwards.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words so this blog is many more pictures than words… well you know what mean! I slightly indulged myself with pictures of aircraft engines but I’m sure you will forgive me for that. I’ve loved taking pictures of them since I was a kid, quite a long time ago!
