On 17th March 2020 the lights were turned off on Concorde Alpha Foxtrot, the last British Concorde to be manufactured and fly. We were forced to close the doors at Aerospace Bristol, a museum preserving over 100 years of unique avaition heritage, in the very place where history was made.
Aerospace Bristol, which is run by a charity, is a museum in its infancy, having only been open just over two years. The loss of vital visitor and event income puts the future of the museum, Concorde and its collections of aircraft, engines, space technology and unique archives - in real jeopardy.
Aerospace Bristol is at risk of not being able to continue to provide schoolchildren the opportunity to experience hands-on learning in subjects such as robotics, coding, new materials and space science. Or, for our young people to experience the wonder of Concorde and dream that they too, one day, could be part of an engineering marvel of the future.
During these extraordinary times, please consider making a donation to ensure Aerospace Bristol can remain a special place, where Bristol’s aviation heritage can be preserved and celebrated for future generations.
Please make a kind donation today to ensure Aerospace Bristol can reopen and return to flight once the Covid-19 crisis is over. Even a small donation will make a real difference to our future, thank you.
You can ensure we can continue to protect over 100 years of aviation heritage and continue to preserve and celebrate Concorde for a new generation to enjoy.
Thank you for your support.
