Viscount Stephen Piercey comes home to Brooklands - the inside story

Back in 1990 the Brooklands Museum asked me to recover V.806 Viscount c/n 412 G-APIM 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 ranged from Stephens fantastic parents Ray and Patsy, through his incredible and diverse friends like Tom Singfield and Roger Hargreaves, and their wives and 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 - British Air Ferries personal like George Burton and Mike Sessions. Lastly my own team Alan, Brian, Ray and 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.
