The British Royal family has a long association with the aerospace industry and several members of "the firm" are visiting the show this week.

HRH Prince Michael of Kent took advantage of an opportunity to meet many top people from the aviation business at a special event organised by Flight International and Airline Business.

At a reception in the historic Brooklands Museum on the site of the original Vickers factory at Weybridge, Prince Michael - patron of the Brooklands Museum - told the guests of the work needed to raise cash to provide hangars for the historic aircraft owned by the museum.

Guests also had the chance to drive in pre-war cars around parts of the famous Brooklands racing circuit.
