Aerospace Bristol

Aerospace Bristol

Starting in the earliest days of powered flight, Aerospace Bristol will take you on a journey through more than a century of aviation achievements. From bold pioneers taking to the skies in their magnificent flying machines, to the remarkable men and women who played their part in two world wars, to those who dreamed a seemingly-impossible dream of supersonic travel: then created the iconic Concorde to turn that dream into reality. All British Airways Concordes first flew from Filton and the stunning centrepiece of your visit will be Concorde Alpha Foxtrot: the last of the iconic supersonic passenger jets to be built in Bristol, and the last to fly. Capable of crossing the Atlantic in under three hours, Concorde cruised at over twice the speed of sound and reached an altitude of 60,000ft.
