A.V Roe

From this area, on various dates in 1907-8, A.V Roe made a series of towing flights and flight trials with an aircraft of his own design and construction, powered, in the later trials, by an 18/24 h.p. Antoinette engine. These trials were made along the finishing straight of the motor racing track, on this site. A.V. Roe thus became the first of the long line of famous pioneers and pilots of many nations who made air history on this flying field of Brooklands. This tablet was placed here in June 1954 by Vickers-Armstrongs Aircraft Division and was unveiled by Sir Alliott Verdon-Roe then in his 78th year.
