    We are working on a documentary that tells the story of the birth of British aviation on Sheppey in 1909, to celebrate the centenary of the event this year.
    We are looking for documents, photographs and films that relate to Moore Brabazon flight and anything related to it: Eastchurch, Leysdown, Short Brothers, Wright Brothers, Charles Rolls, Muswell Manor etc…

    If you do have any of these documents, we would love to know about it…
    We would appreciate it if you could get in touch with us by email.
