AUTHOR: Sir Robert Wall
Bristol Aircraft (pdf e-book)
Bristol Aircraft (pdf e-book)
  • Description
  • Related

Bristol aircraft enjoyed a reputation for rugged reliability, flight safety and quality of build – from the Boxkite to the Bulldog, from the Blenheim to the Britannia, to Concorde. Around the factories there grew up in North Bristol a new community which owed its livelihood to the aeroplane.

Many families knew no other source of employment and today there are many third generation employees following family tradition in jobs at Filton and Patchway.

In this profusely illustrated history, Robert Wall, himself a Bristol employee for four decades, pays tribute to those whose foresight, faith, skill, industry and courage brought the Bristol aeroplane industry to the pinnacle of achievement and produced some of the world's best and best-loved aircraft.
