Britannia Event

Commemorative Plaque

One of the largest and most prestigious events held was on 3 November 2007 – a day of remembrance for those on board the Britannia airliner which, in November 1957, crashed in Britannia Wood with the loss of life of all on board. The aircraft was on a test flight from Filton. A plaque commemorating this event was unveiled by Mrs Statham, the widow of the pilot. This was followed by a lunch in Lincombe Barn, together with an exhibition to mark the subsequent success of the Britannia aircraft.
