      It's a super museum of our aeroplane history....UK was once in the lead, but probably could not afford the development costs.

      I have the accolade of having flown on a Comet, circa 1980....

        We went on the Concorde at Brooklands. I was surprised at how narrow the cabin was - I could touch both walls at the same time. A lot of the fittings were also very 'plasticky'.

            I'm not sure - I'm 6' 4 1/2" and I guess that my arms are proportionate.

                The seats were OK. They did a simulated flight, with sound effects and the seats vibrating. The 'speed' was also shown on the large digital display at the front.

                  Compared to Yeovil, there appears to be much more space around exhibits, is that because they have less to display, or more space?

                      There is plenty to see IMO... we were there for about 4 hours including time for a cuppa

                      The Concorde has it's own hanger which they also use for some events hence the large amount of space around it. To see lots of exhibits .. look at mark's other thread

                      There are also 2 restoration buildings which if you are lucky to be there when people are working so they are open add some more interest.

                        I looked at that, and it's what made me think that Filton might be best for isolation of subjects as I remember Yeovil as being crammed full as this linked image shows

                          You can get a good shot of the Concorde at Brooklands. It's in the open without any surrounding 'clutter'.
