Aerospace Bristol (Concorde Museum)
Hayes Way, Patchway
Region: South West
It was decided at our planning meeting that it would be worth a trip to the Concorde Museum at Filton Bristol. So here’s a snippet from their website to let you know what we can expect.
Things to see and do
Starting in the earliest days of powered flight, Aerospace Bristol will whisk you away on an immersive journey through more than a century of incredible aviation achievements and fascinating tales of human endeavour.
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.
Your journey takes you from the beginnings of the British and Colonial Aeroplane Company in 1910 all the way through to the modern day, where you will explore cutting-edge technology, and look ahead to an exciting future, discovering how the next generation of engineers will continue to push aerospace technology to new heights and reach for the stars.
A visit to Aerospace Bristol is a chance to travel through the decades, enjoy fun interactives and amazing exhibits – including aeroplanes, helicopters, missiles, satellites, engines and more – and immerse yourself in a story of ordinary people achieving extraordinary things.
Step aboard the last Concorde
The stunning centrepiece of your visit will be Concorde Alpha Foxtrot: the last of the iconic supersonic passenger jets to be built 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. Her passengers would marvel at the curvature of the Earth and look up at a blue-black sky, as they travelled at 1320mph and sipped Champagne on the edge of space.
Admission is £15.00 and £13.00 for over 65’s
Looks like it will be a fantastic day out and one definitely worth coming along to.
