BOLINGBROKE 9048 PROJECT

Rescued from the US, the Bristol Bolingbroke bomber is a Canadian-built version of the Bristol Blenheim, and flew with the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1946 until withdrawn from service.

It is being lovingly restored by a team of volunteers and once complete will go on display in her RCAF colours from 1942.

BRISTOL FIGHTER

The Bristol Fighter - or "Brisfit" - was a World War One two-seat biplane fighter and reconnaissance aircraft, and a formidable opponent for German fighters. Over 5,000 Bristol Fighters were produced at Filton, and work is underway to restore the aircraft, including a new set of wings, readying the Fighter for its return to Bristol from North America.
