Back in 1990 Brooklands Museum asked me to recover a Vickers Viscount
named Stephen Piercey. When I agreed I had no idea how much this one job
would come to mean to me, or prepare me for the wonderful people who I
would soon meet and call my friends, as a result of the project.
Those people range from Stephens fantastic parents Ray and Patsy, through
his incredible and diverse friends like Tom Singfield and Roger Hargreaves,
their wives / partners.
It includes people who worked on the project like Mick Bates, Viscount
Pilots like Jock Bryce and Colin Towle. Project leaders like Ron Brant and
John Woodhouse. BAF personal like George Burton and Mike Sessions. Lastly
my own team Alan, Brian, Ray, Tony and the girls Pat and Christine
Lambert. There are many other who were also touched by this project and we
all did our part.
What did we achieve? We saved and restored perhaps the best (and certainly
the most connected with Brooklands) Viscount. We did it against the odds
and with very little money. Most of all we did it with love and perhaps we
did it for someone special, many of us never got to meet, but who meant so
much to our new friends.
