The Book

This book covers the wider aspects of the aerospace industry, including its
industrial heritage, social impacts, technological developments, and
continuing significance, utilising a number of archives to create a unique and
well-illustrated view of aviation around Bristol and Gloucestershire.

The British & Colonial Aeroplane Company was established in 1910 at Filton
on a site that is now an Airbus design and engineering centre. BAE Systems
also have facilities at Filton. Bristol aircraft engines were first built at the
nearby Patchway site in the 1920s, part of which Rolls-Royce uses to
manufacture aero engines. From Boxkite to Concorde many famous aircraft
were built at Bristol.
Beginning with fighter aircraft manufactured during World War One, Gloster
Aircraft went on to produce aircraft until closure in 1964, including the RAF’s
last biplane and its first jet fighter. Dowty developed landing gear and fuel
control systems and acquired Rotol Airscrews. Parnall constructed aircraft
and gun turrets at sites in Bristol and Yate.
