N2980 is the only surviving Brooklands-built Wellington. During a training flight on the 31st December 1940 she developed engine trouble and ditched into Loch Ness. All the crew escaped, but the rear gunner was killed when his parachute failed to deploy. In 1976 the aircraft was located by a team of American Loch Ness Monster hunters and was successfully salvaged on 21st September 1985 and undergoing restoration by the Brooklands Museum..
