Aircraft Hangar, Filton Airfield, Bristol

TRM DA
A Aircraft Hangar at the Airbus Works at Filton Airfield, Bristol. The rear part was built around World War Two and was used as part of the Bristol Aeroplane Company's Works. Bristol Filton Airport or Filton Aerodrome lies on the border between Filton and Patchway, within South Gloucestershire, to the north of Bristol, England. The airfield is bounded by the A38 trunk road to the east, the former London to Avonmouth railway line to the south and the Old Filton Bypass road to the north west. The aerodrome's main runway runs east-west. The aerodrome is also called Filton Airfield. The original flying ground was on the top of the hill on the site of the current Airbus works. In 1915 the airfield moved down to its current location. On 14 April 2011, BAE Systems announced that the airfield is to close at the end of 2012. There is a similar hangar at the Oldmixon Factory in Weston. #A38 #Aerodrome #Airbus #Aircraft #Airport #Bristol #Bristol_Aeroplane_Company #Factory #Filton #Filton_Airfield #Hangar #industrial #industry #South_Gloucestershire #TRM_DA #WW2
