WATCH: New 'City of Bristol' military plane soars over suspension bridge

The RAF's new A400m military plane, christened 'City of Bristol' to commemorate the city's role in building it, has completed a fly-past over the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

The name, described as a "special privilege" by the Ministry of Defence, is a positive development for the troubled project, which has seen a series of technical problems and delays.

Airbus, which designed and manufactured the plane's wings at its Filton site, recently shook up the management of the project.
