41 Sqn RNZAF Freighter Restoration
Our sister Association in New Zealand has a rather large artefact undergoing restoration at Aerospace Bristol, Filton.
Reposted from Aerospace Bristol: http://aerospacebristol.org/freighter
Aerospace Bristol has returned one of the last remaining Bristol Type 170 Freighters home to Bristol from New Zealand in January 2018.
Designed and built by the Bristol Aeroplane Company, a total of 214 Freighters, and its passenger variant the Wayfarer, were built and used by airlines and air forces across the world. Sadly, only 11 complete Freighters survive in the world today, and this is the only one to be located in Europe.
