All at Staverton, of course ..
[The heirs, 'Dowty Propellers', now part of GE Aviation, suffered a catastrophic fire at the original Rotol factory at Staverton not that long ago. Production, mainly of carbonfibre propellers for the C130Js, was uninterrupted but moved to a temporary site in the Forest of Dean. It is now due to move back to a permanent home on the Gloucester Business Park, ie on the former GAC airfield at Brockworth]
As a footnote to that footnote ...
The new factory was formally opened today. JAM hosted a related private reception shindig, as we often do for local aviation companies. As part of this we were presented with a small piece of the old Brockworth runway, which has largely or wholly now been dug up. However, at JAM we can provide a leaflet guide to a walking route which points out legacy of the airfield infrastructure still visible. Definitely better tackled in summer, though; it will be rather muddy in parts at the moment!https://www.gloucestershirelive.co.uk/n ... rs-3609555
