Concorde 'Flight' Experience & Brooklands Museum Visit

Overview

Concorde 'Flight' Experience & Brooklands Museum Visit 

Brooklands was the first motor racing circuit in the UK, its banked track being opened in 1907.
The site was also an aircraft factory from 1939 to the 1980s.
It is now the home of the Brooklands Museum with displays of both aircraft and classic cars. Part of the banked track is in the museum grounds and the race track finishing straight has recently been restored. 
The aircraft exhibits have also been rehoused recently thanks to a lottery and other grants  
The afternoon will include talks by a Concorde Pilot, the history of the Brooklands Concorde and an outline of the museum.
 There will then be a visit to the aircraft itself with a Concorde “flight” experience, followed by a guided tour of the Museum. The Concorde is fully restored resplendent in its original British Airways livery and is located behind the Edwardian clubhouse. 
The afternoon will conclude with networking and refreshments of cakes, sandwiches, wine, tea and coffee
