BAE Systems will give £2.4 million towards creating a new Bristol Aerospace Centre at Filton Airfield.
Two World War One hangers will be converted into an aviation museum to ensure the long-term conservation and display of Concorde, which took its first flight from Filton.
The Bristol Aerospace Centre will bring together Bristol’s important aviation heritage, which is currently in various collections, many inaccessible to the public. Of the British-built Concordes, only one is now located at its birthplace on Filton Airfield and it’s an exciting prospect that the museum will be able to provide a permanent home for Concorde.
