"Designed and built by the Bristol Aeroplane Company, a total of 214 Freighters, and its passenger variant the Wayfarer, were built and used by airlines and air forces across the world. This Freighter was ‘saved from the scrapheap’ and brought home from New Zealand in 2018 by our volunteers and hundreds of generous donors. The aircraft is one of only 11 Bristol Freighter’s remaining in the world and now the only one in the whole of Europe!
Thanks to your support, the Freighter is being safely stored and its condition assessed by the Aerospace Bristol team.
The plan is for the Freighter to be safely housed inside the new Conservation in Action workshop, for volunteers and apprentices to undergo work to conserve the aircraft for the future."https://aerospacebristol.org/vision
