Brabazon: The Beautiful Dream

On September 4th 1949, the largest land plane ever to be constructed in Britain took to the skies from Filton airfield, under the control of test pilot Bill Pegg. The 230ft wingspan of the Bristol Brabazon MK 1 cast shadows upon thousands of spectators, who were witnessing the fruition of a £12m project.

This revolutionary aircraft was designed to convey 100 passengers across the Atlantic in complete luxury. When the Brabazon project was cancelled in 1953, the giant machine had logged 400 hours of flight test, but it would never fulfil the crossing to North America.

With the help of unique archive footage, and stunning photographs, you can now re-live the Brabazon's full and fascinating history: from its conception in 1943 through to a sad demise ten years later.
