Bristol Airport Spotting held the first spotters day at Bristol Airport within the Admin Building, on Sunday 10th June 2018. The event was held in the Bristol Room with great views of the runway, apron and taxiway. Previous aviation fairs have been held in this great room and this event was held before the building is removed over the next couple of years, ahead of exciting airport developments.
During the spotters day there was an an informative talk from Bristol Airport Police and the opportunity to purchase some Bristol Airport Spotting branded merchandise. The event was open to all aviation enthusiasts and people with a keen interest in aviation, unlike previous aviation fairs this spotters day was simply about watching and photographing the aircraft actions, there were no stalls, exhibits or attractions on the day.
Entry to the event was restricted with ticket only to keep numbers to a suitable amount, entry cost was £2.00 each which raised £106.00 for Childrens Hospice South West.
We hope to hold a further 2 more events in 2019 before the Admin Building is sadly demolished to make way for the new airport developments.
