Partly-cleared section of Byfleet Banking as seen on 21st March (Julian Temple).


Brooklands Conservation Management Plan is now almost ready for general issue and a signifi- cant early outcome of this document is that work recently started to clear that most neglected section of the historic Outer Circuit – the western section of the Byfleet Banking. As a Brooklands Museum initiative, supported by Historic England and approved by Elmbridge Borough Council and the various landowners, on 14th March volunteers prepared the area for the chosen contractors (ProMow Landscapes Ltd) by collecting years of accumulated rubbish before a successful initial phase of clearance work was completed on 20th- 21st March. This was largely achieved by using an impressive, special ride-on mower to remove all brambles and light undergrowth among the trees and bushes. Mercedes-Benz World and its contrac- tor Gavin Jones have also provided welcome extra assistance and the rest of the work should be completed by mid-April. Meanwhile, at Bicester Heritage, monthly trips


propellers re-fitted in the Vimy Pavilion on 27th January by Mike Lynn and others and was then carefully moved outside again on 14th March (to facilitate essential maintenance work on the Vimy). Initially parked outside the Acoustics Building, then temporarily parked between Concorde and the Omani VC10 before Mini Day, ‘RRM’ should soon have its tail-plane repaired and fitted while we continue to explore potential options for its long-term future elsewhere. Events With the success of the Brooklands Aircraft Factory project, which continues to generate serious media interest, the last eight weeks have been especially busy. On 26th January we hosted a visit from FlyPast


magazine editor Chris Gilson and aviation photographer Darren Harbar – both visiting the Museum for the first time and both being really impressed by what they saw. Coincidentally, Gary Savage was kindly flying some selected Museum staff and volunteers and Mercedes-Benz staff in Jorn Rausing’s Bell B206 G-TEGS and Darren was able to take some aerial photos of Brooklands and the Museum site during his visit. We look forward to seeing another major feature in FlyPast’s May issue. Sadly, that same day, notable war-time and post-war Bomber Command veteran, senior RAF
