Bristol Aero Collection

When British Airways retired their Concorde fleet, they chose Concorde 216 - the youngest of the fleet - to make the historic final flight of a Concorde on 26 November 2003 when she returned to Filton, birthplace of supersonic flight.

Bristol Aero Collection, a local aviation preservation charity which looks after much of Filton's aviation heritage at a temporary museum at Kemble, was selected to create the Concorde at Filton visitor attraction and provide all the volunteers to manage the public visits to Alpha Foxtrot.

All the proceeds from Concorde at Filton will be used to create a major aviation heritage centre for the public display of Concorde Alpha Foxtrot, the charity's aviation collection, and aviation-related artefacts from the heritage organisatons.
