The Aerospace Galleries
Discover over 100 years of aviation history at Aerospace Bristol as you journey through 7 different eras. From the early 1900s to the present day, explore the vital role of aircrafts in global conflicts including the two world wars as well as the technological advances of today’s aerospace industry. You’ll also uncover how a small, pioneering company in Filton, Bristol influenced the course of aviation history and manufactured some of the earliest aeroplanes.
What’s more, there are 8,000 artefacts waiting to be discovered including Hubble Space Telescope, Bristol Babe, Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 fan, Airbus A320 and helicopters, rockets and missiles.
The Concorde Hangar
The highlight of your visit is without a doubt Concorde G-BOAF (Alpha Foxtrot), the last of the historic supersonic passenger jets to be built and the last to fly, making its final flight on 26th November 2003. It could cross the Atlantic in under 3 hours and at an altitude of 60,000ft. Those lucky enough to have experienced this remarkable feat of engineering travelled at 1320mph on the edge of space. Learn about Concorde’s epic history with three short films projected onto the sides of the aircraft before stepping inside. There is also an exhibition gallery with a large collection of memorabilia including a pilot’s uniform, model and a flight deck.
The Conservation in Action Workshop
The latest addition to Aerospace Bristol, explore conservation projects up-close in a restored Grade II listed WWI aircraft hangar built in 1915. See Bristol Bolingbroke 9048, Bristol Mercury engines, Bristol Hercules engines and step onboard a Bristol Freighter Mk 31M NZ5911.
