The funding comes from the Heritage Lottery Fund. So far, about £9m has been pledged but the Bristol Aero Collection Trust, who are behind the plans, need £13.5m to complete the musuem in Filton.

The Director of the Trust, Lloyd Burnell, says there's now 'real momentum' behind the project, which could be completed by July 2016.
