Flight Deck

My five year old son Luke "flying" a Vickers VC10 airliner at the Brooklands Museum in Weybridge, Surrey.

The Museum is built on the site of the former Brooklands racing circuit and Vickers aircraft factory where iconic planes such as the Wellington bomber and Vickers Viscount were built.

The Museum is very family friendly and well worth a visit.


  1. Oh, what fun! I bet that's the sort of thing my Ste would like to do. Maybe we should head on out there one day.

    Did your little one manage not to crash? :)

  2. We both had a great day. The volunteers who work there are really friendly - mostly people that used to work at the aircraft factory. Very happy to answer any questions and good ith the kids. Well worth a visit. Apart from the planes there are F1 cars, motorbikes, buses etc.
