Freighter returns

AviationPosted by Peter Smith Mon, January 08, 2018 00:17:10

After a trek from Ardmore in New Zealand a Bristol Freighter arrived at Filton, Bristol this week, fuselage early in the week and the wings a couple of days ago. It is believed to be the only aircraft of its type in Europe and is scheduled for restoration by Aerospace Bristol where it will go on display in due course. Be nice to see this old workhorse once it has been refreshed. More if you click here.

Interesting. While looking this one up (as I often do from info here) I relalized there is a restored Bristol freighter just outside my city - Mk 31 C-GYQS, at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum, Wetaskiwin Airport, Alberta. I need to go back out there to revisit.
