Important Announcement: Due to unforeseen circumstances completely outside the control of the Speke Aerodrome Heritage Group who are the organisers, the yearly Speke aviation fair on 28 June 2015 has been postponed. Please pass on this message to any of your friends who were intending to come.
However, Charlie Fox will still be open and restoration work will take place. As always, you are very welcome to come and visit us on Sunday 28th June.
THANK YOU FOR VISITING THE BRITANNIA AIRCRAFT PRESERVATION TRUST’S ON-LINE HOME
We are currently restoring Bristol Britannia aircraft G-ANCF Charlie Fox at the former passenger terminal at Speke in Liverpool.
The Britannia Aircraft Preservation Trust is in full swing restoring one of the last few remaining Britannia aircraft in the world.
Our key targets for 2015, before winter sets in, are:
- The aircraft paint-stripped and re-painted in its 1964 British Eagle livery when the aircraft operated out of Liverpool Speke Airport
- The aircraft lifted up onto trestles and its main undercarriage, which has just been refurbished, re-attached
- There are other sub-targets which you can read about in our progess pages
We would also like to thank everyone in the Liverpool and surrounding areas who attend the annual Speke Air Fair in June and who give us their support by putting coins in our collection box. Last but not least, many thanks to all individuals and businesses, local and national, who have donated to the project in the past and presently.
Please visit our Help Us pages to read about different ways you can help the project.
