Loch Ness Monster found in Weybridge

Powdertech are members of The Aluminium Federation (ALFED) and The Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB). Part of their remit is to demonstrate the strength, functionality and longevity of aluminium and what better way to do this than by viewing the “Loch Ness” Wellington Bomber at the Brooklands Museum in Weybridge.

The geodetic construction makes building a strong, light and rigid structure relatively easy using just a few simple aluminium sections. Unfortunately engine failure over The Great Glen in 1940 confined the aircraft to the bottom of Loch Ness for 45-years before being raised, almost intact, and returned to Brooklands where it was originally built in 1939.

What you see today is a structure that has survived almost unchanged for 76-years, more than half of them under water, without any significant corrosion.

Just think how long it would last if it were powder coated!
