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, under restoration), as well as many scaled models. The exhibitions will be themed around the seven different eras of aviation with a separate hangar that celebrates the story of Concorde and its local connection.

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 intended to be 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.
