Steve Beebee visits the recently opened Aerospace Bristol – home to the last Concorde and much more
MUSEUMS AEROSPACE BRISTOL
If asked for memories of Concorde – as new museum Aerospace Bristol did in one of its interactive projects – I would gleefully recall the first time I glimpsed the aircraft, at Coventry Airshow in 1982. I remember standing there as a child with my dad watching this marvel of engineering arcing towards the flightline, slowing down and cruising elegantly past our widening eyes. A chorus of camera shutters and the whine of its engines provided the soundtrack.
