Aerospace Bristol, the new home of the last Concorde ever to fly, has announced it will open its doors to visitors from 17th October 2017.

Located on the Filton Airfield, the new family attraction will tell the story of the concord and features aerospace exhibits – including aeroplanes, helicopters, missiles, satellites and more.

The star attraction will be Concorde Alpha Foxtrot, the last Concorde to be built and the last to fly.

Visitors can explore the history of Concorde, step aboard the aircraft, and experience an audio-visual show projected on to the supersonic jet.

Lloyd Burnell, Executive Director of Aerospace Bristol, says the team "couldn’t be more excited".

We hope that all those who saw Concorde on her final flight into Filton that historic day will want to be one of the first to come and pay tribute to this very special design and engineering icon and learn about the Bristol people who worked here over the years.
