Brooklands Museum: Planes

After being used as a race track, Brooklands was the site of a lot of aircraft testing and production, including Vickers.

Famous planes such as the Wellington bomber (one of two remaining is on site) and the VC10 were constructed on site.

Today, there are a lot of planes with some connection to the site on display.

This particular VC10 belonged to Oman.

That's a bit beyond business class..
