Milly at one of the many Vehicle Rallies she attended around the time she retired from paid work. You can see how big the inside of the cabin is

Thumbnail

When Queens Motors delivered the front Cockpit section of Concorde ‘Delta Golf’ once again both her good friend the 'Brooklands Belle' and Milly were waiting to lift it off the low loader.

Thumbnail

Milly is not just an exhibit at Brooklands, she works as hard as any other vehicle. Towing this Hunter is typical of the sort of thing she does and you will often see here working during a visit to Brooklands Museum.

Thumbnail

How many recovery vehicles can say they fitted a Concorde Droop Nose I wonder.

Who has got the bolt that holds it on?

Thumbnail

Milly carefully delivers a historic glass former Control Tower from RAF Booker (now Wycombe Air Park) to a much bigger crane that is going to lift it on to the roof of the Brooklands Acoustics building.

Thumbnail

In August 2007 some of the current National Rescue fleet came to Brooklands to have their photo taken with Milly

Thumbnail

This is the photo. It does beg the question if any of them will still be around when they are over Fifty

Thumbnail

As Milly drew closer to her sixtieth birthday Andy Lambert asked friends Tony Amos and the late and greatly missed Alan Poet if they would help clean and repaint Milly. In this image Alan can be seen cutting through some rusted fixings

Thumbnail

Once work had started it became clear this was going to be a big and expensive job, fortunately Milly has friends and they all chipped in to help. Those friends included Brooklands Museum, Epsom Coaches, Langley Vale Recovery, National Rescue, Proteus Aero Services and The friends of Viscount Stephen Piercey.

Another Barnes Wallis item, this time Milly is transporting one of his 'Upkeep’ mines better known as Bouncing Bombs, as used by the Dam Buster

Milly on her Sixtieth Birthday in 2014 surrounded by some of the many exhibits she helps to maintain.

The Concorde model that used to sit at the approach to Heathrow Airport came to Brooklands to be our Gate Guard, here is Milly preparing it for restoration.

Thumbnail

Milly is unloading a Viscount Cockpit just rescued from being scraped. It will be cleaned up and become part of the new Re-Engineering Brooklands display.

Thumbnail

The Viscount from the other-side, it will look much better soon.

Thumbnail

In 2016 the Wellington Hangar was to be relocated. This meant it had to be emptied and so of course Milly and the Brooklands Belle got stuck into moving things. Here she winching a VC10 fuselage onto its new base to make room for aircraft coming out of the Hangar.

Thumbnail

This time it is a Rolls-Royce Olympus engine as used by Concorde being collected from within the Hangar.

Thumbnail

The Olympus engine on its way to a new location.

Thumbnail

This is a forward section of a Vickers Wellington Bomber it is in the process of been referbushed to be used as a walkway that people can travel through to see what the inside of the aircraft was like. Milly is placing it on a trailer ready to be taken to the newly built Flight Shed where it will be on display.

Thumbnail

The Wellington outside a Hangar for the first time in 75 years (it was assembled inside after being rescued in bits from Loch Ness) is lifted by Milly to fit a steerable trailer.

Thumbnail

Another view of the same job showing Andy Lambert (Milly’s owner), Andrew Lewis (Museum Curator) and some of Milly’s team - Mike Cowen, Ben Green and Paul Swift lifting the Wellington on to skates before moving to its temporary storage.

Thumbnail

Loading the Vickers Valiant 'V' Bomber Cockpit section on to its new trailer.

Thumbnail

Relocating one of Barnes Wallis' Bombs this is the Grand Slam 22,000lbs earthquake bomb. They were used during the second World War both on railway viaducts and submarine pens

Thumbnail

A very important job this one! The famous Brooklands Wellington rescued from Loch Ness had to be moved into temporary storage. Here Milly can be seen rigging a ‘front line pull’ with her powerful winch to winch it inside the building.

Thumbnail

Once again Milly is moving a section of a Bomb through the Brooklands aircraft park you can also see the rears of a Varsity and Viking aircraft that Milly reassembled on their arrival by road to Brooklands.

Thumbnail

Another view of the Viscount Cockpit (shown arriving further up the page), after its rebuild. It had been resting on its back during its refurbishment, but now the Belle has lifted it up and Milly then lifted it horizontally to then be lowered on to a trailer. It can now be seen in the new factory display area at Brooklands.

Milly being admired by a random, but attractive blonde while off duty and meeting up with a couple of Breakdown Tenders of the type that would have accompanied her on major incidents during her life with London Transport. This was an open day of the London Bus Museum also at Brooklands.
