Concorde 216 – Alpha Foxtrot – made its spectacular final flight home into Filton, Bristol, on 26th November 2003.

Concorde at Filton is a temporary home for Concorde 216. Local organisations and companies are supporting the creation of a major aviation heritage centre, where Concorde 216 will be under cover as the centre-piece of displays and exhibits that detail the story of the region’s long-standing role in the world of aerospace.

British Airways has loaned Concorde 216 to Airbus UK, who campaigned hard to bring the aircraft back to Filton. The Bristol Aero Collection, a local aviation preservation charity which looks after much of Filton’s aviation heritage at Kemble (near Cirencester), is managing Concorde at Filton through its team of enthusiastic and hard working volunteers. All proceeds will be used for the creation of a major aviation heritage centre at Filton into which G-BOAF will move.
