Rare French Air Force A310 visits Bristol Airport

It was an early start for many spotters on Sunday 24th April 2016 as overnight news that a French Air Force Airbus A310 was visiting Bristol Airport ensured many spotters and members were at the airport early enough for its arrival as well as making for great photo opportunities of such a rare aircraft to visit the airport.

The Airbus A310 F-RADC aircraft was picking up French troops from an exercise and taking them back to Toulon, France. The previous day the same aircraft had arrived at Newquay which we believe to be doing a similar role.

Once again Winters Lane was very busy with spotters and military spotters who don’t often visit the airport but turned out today for such a rare visitor, many spotters commented that is was so nice to see a wide body aircraft at the airport again, and being an A310 becoming more and more rare globally.
