The famous old control tower from 'Those Magnificent Men...' 
With Prince Michael of Kent, who is the Patron of the Brooklands Museum, and my old WW1 favourite, the Se5a.  Used to fly a replica in New Zealand... Another film set...! The Barnes Wallis Stratosphere chamber where they simulated weather effects The old hangar which was built over the finishing straight of the original race track The wonderful old Vickers Vimy, the Spirit of Brooklands, and a stirring reminder of more record breaking flights from the 1920's A Bleriot, I think.  All wires, wing-warping and pram wheels...heaven! Inside the main hangar A gorgeous 1913 Rolls Royce which I got to ride around the track Another beautiful concours vehicle Me, the Prince and a Roll Royce Merlin The Wellington Bomber stripped down to show it's innovative geodetic structure
