Early 2004, outside the Filton Hangar where Concorde G-BBDG had been
stored for 16 years, Gordon Roxburgh, Julian Temple and Andy Lambert
look a little apprehensive at what lies ahead. Although for reasons of Health and Safety, outside professional people had to be involved, BREAST
members still were involved with large parts of this project and thereby saved the Museum a substantial amount of their meagre funds.
Below gives an indication of what Concorde G-BBDG looked like then. If you have seen the Brookland's Concorde as it is today this may surprise you.
The first BREAST convoy from Filton used a specially built cradle
designed by CeeJay Systems and manufactured by Warwick Trailers.
It was later joined by Recovery Operators from all over the area, who wanted to help. In the end everything but the Centre Fuselage
section was transported for free, by members of the UK Recovery Industry (with the majority being done by Queens Motors).
The first major sections arriving at Brooklands and are laid
out to await final assembly.
Below can be seen the same Concorde some seven years later being winched by the Brooklands Belle.
It is a tribute to that remarkable man Gordon Roxburgh and his Concorde Team that they have achieved so much.
