Aerospace Bristol

Aerospace Bristol Map

Aerospace Bristol is located at Filton, to the north of Bristol.

The main exhibition is housed in a First World War Grade II listed hangar with a second hanger from the same era used as the workshop and storage area for items undergoing restoration.

Concorde 'Alpha Foxtrot' is situated in a new, purpose-built hangar and the exhibition covers over 100 years of aviation history through two world wars, exploring the role of aircraft in these conflicts, through the drama and technological advances of the space race and on to the modern day.

Aerospace Bristol is a new aerospace museum & learning centre that is due to open at Filton in Bristol later this year and run by the Bristol Aero Collection Trust.

The nine-acre site includes two First World War Grade II listed hangars, providing over 5,000m² of public exhibition space, 1,700m² of indoor learning spaces and workshops, plus over 5,000m² of outdoor learning and testing space.

On 26 May 2016, Aerospace Bristol held a ground-breaking ceremony to mark the start of construction of the new Concorde hangar and on 7 February 2017, Concorde Alpha Foxtrot was moved into a new purpose-built hangar at Aerospace Bristol.

Museum Exhibits

Museum Exhibits:
The collection contains over 8,000 artefacts of Bristol-built aircraft including Concorde 216, Bristol Scout, Bristol Fighter and a Blenheim IV (WWII Bristol Bolingbroke bomber), as well as a number of Bristol aircraft engines and many scaled models. The exhibitions are themed around seven different eras of aviation with a separate hangar that celebrates the story of Concorde and its local connection. On 8 March 2017, a Sea Harrier was delivered to the museum site, airlifted by an RAF Chinook, for display in the exhibition.

Concorde 216:
Concorde 216 (G-BOAF), was the last Concorde built, and was also the last in a long line of Bristol-designed aircraft to be assembled and flown at Filton. It returned home on 26th November 2003, making the final flight by a Concorde. It is the centrepiece of a heritage centre at Filton, devoted to the history of aviation in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

Education & Learning:
The museum will feature a fully equipped learning centre with specialist facilities for school and youth groups to deliver an inspiring and practical learning programme for schools and develop STEM skills and discover the possibilities of a career in engineering.
