Spent a nice couple of hours at Brooklands in crisp, but rather cold weather. I also had the great pleasure of meeting Duncan Simpson OBE, Harrier and Hawk Chief Test Pilot, who told me a remarkable story of ejecting from a Harrier at under 100ft after an engine failure, where there was no explosive coil on the canopy and therefore breaking his neck in the process!!
Anyway, the Camel engine run was a nice touch for our little crowd of about 40 people.
Now a small sample of the rest of the collection - had a good sit in the Vanguard's left-hand seat!!
A rather good day out...
