Bristol Boxkite

Bristol Boxkite

Back to 2003   Back to Timeline

G2996. This working replica of a Bristol Boxkite, can be viewed at the Shuttleworth Museum Trust. This photograph was taken during September 2003. Manufacturing of the Bristol Boxkite began during November of 1910, at Filton in South Gloucestershire. Two aircraft a week were made at this time. This completely new way of travelling meant that people needed to learn to fly. A market had been created by the operation of two flying schools, one at Larkhill and one at Brooklands. If you wish to visit The Shuttleworth Collection, the address is (Old Warden Park) Aerodrome, Nr Biggleswade, Bedfordshire SG18 9EP.
