Bristol Flying School

G1182. The Bristol Flying School around 1928 to 30. The first world war Acceptance Sheds have grown considerably. Now they are home to the Bristol Engine Division, headed by the up and coming designer, Roy (later Sir) Fedden, and the Bristol Flying School. A new canteen has gone up on the right of the Gloucester Road and opposite the hangars. It is strange to see a farm and animals on what will be the end of the main east/west runway in a a short time.
