Visit Brooklands Museum!
G-BBDG, 'Delta Golf',
was the first British production Concorde and her maiden
flight was in February 1974. She was used for much of the flight
testing and aircraft type certification prior to Concorde
entering service in 1976. In the spring of 2004, she was taken
in sections from Filton near Bristol, where British Concordes
were assembled, to Brooklands Museum in Surrey.
It was at Brooklands that
many famous aircraft were built including early Hurricanes in
the 1930s, the Viscounts and Vanguards of the 1950s and the magnificent
VC10s of the 1960s. Brooklands was also the largest production
centre for Concorde during the project's lifetime, with Filton
and Toulouse in France being the final assembly factories.
From August 2006 'Delta
Golf' is on permanent display at the museum. Come to Brooklands
to see her and enjoy the Brooklands Concorde Experience which
comprises an exhibition area with video, a 'walk through' of
the whole aircraft plus an exciting video presentation seated
in a real Concorde cabin.
