Home of the Concorde

Aerospace Bristol

Filton Airfield is one of the few centres in the world with a history of excellence in aerospace production dating back over a century. Numerous aerospace-related companies which make an enormous contribution to the UK’s economy are based there.

Importantly, Bristol is home to the UK’s most iconic aircraft, Concorde, which was designed and built at Filton, with the first British flight taking off in 1969 and the fleet’s final supersonic flight landing at the airfield in 2003.​

The vision for Aerospace Bristol is to develop a major aviation heritage museum that inspires and entertains through the presentation of the science, technology and engineering excellence of Bristol’s aerospace industry. Event’s design approach draws on Filton’s rich archival collections, creating exhibitions informed by the language of the former factory and its workforce.​
