Vickers Wellington N2980
We featured this aircraft some years ago when it was in
its previous position within the museum, but with different
access now it resides in the Aircraft Factory we decided to
run a follow up. More famously known as the ‘Loch Ness Wellington’
following its ditching there on 31st December 1940, N2980 is the
only surviving Wellington to have seen active service during
World War II.
Brooklands Museum Aircraft Factory
.One of the recent developments at Brooklands was the
moving of the Wellington hangar and the creation of
the Aircraft Factory within once reconstructed.
This is how redevelopment of a museum should be,
artefacts still on display and proper hands-on things
for people to learn from, not just push-button displays
that make a noise as some museums seem to have installed!
