  1. In its last years of operation, the BAe company Dove or Beagle 206 used to operate in and out talking to Farnborough.
    In mid 1975, the ‘206, flown by Roly Beamont, departed Brooklands and his first words to Farnborough were ‘Farnborough G-XXXX, I’m going to have to land with you as my propellor’s just fallen off’!

  2. After the BA site closed the Clubhouse was refurbished by Trafalgar House (around 1985), they then sold it to a water treatment company called Nastons, who in turn rented part of it back to TH and also my company the National Rescue Group.

    During our time there our software division MTS, developed what would become the Recovery Industry standard for communication and job exchange ‘Turbo Dispatch’. There is a little clip of the building (amongst some 300 other Brooklands related videos on my You Tube channel. Here is a shortcut direct to that clip https://youtu.be/qdZy9FooxB0

  3. I think that rather than ‘tower’it was actually called the ‘clubhouse’.
    There was a later tower during the latter days of Vickers/BAe, the VCR cab of which is now in the museum.
