An aerial view of Filton air field

An aerial view of Filton air field

Go back to the records from the 1955 map.

G3316. Taken in 1952 this aerial view shows the, then, new Brabazon Assemble Halls and the extended runway. The 'chopped' by-pass is clearly shown on the left and the A38 trunk road is seen winding through on the right. The sprawling factory can be seen on the middle right of the picture.
