Dear BODA follower,
Im arranging another tour of the historic Brabazon hangar and its remarkable contents. at Filton next Friday, July 15th. At the time,this was the world’s largest single span building. This is not open to the public for reasons that will become obvious. It is the home of the Bristol Aero collection whose volunteer engineers are preparing exhibits for the TERRIFIC new, HLF funded Bristol Aerospace Centre, opening next year.
The Hangar contents currently include almost everything made by the Bristol Aeroplane Company and its derivatives, in the last hundred years and more. They range from the sublime to the very scary.
I’m fund raising; as you may know, we are preparing a partly dissected 1953 Bristol 403 (see below) for display amidst the dramatic 1950s timeline of the Bristol Aeroplane Company. So the hat will be passed! (£20 suggested donation)
We rendezvous at BAWA car park, 589 Southmead Rd, Filton, Bristol BS34 7RG at 10:30 AM, and will then drive round in convoy to the West entrance of the factory via security. I will provide coffee, biscuits, and sandwiches for lunch.
RSVP (for Security and lunch numbers)
Do hope you can make it!
All the best
