Bristol Brigand RH746 delivered to Bristol Aero Collection

The sole surviving Brigand fuselage, from B Mark 1 RH746, was moved to a new home at Kemble on 19th April. The battered fuselage, previously at the North East Aircraft Museum in Sunderland, is now on display with the Bristol Aero Collection. It had been in storage in Sunderland since the early 1980's when it was rescued from a scrap yard at Failsworth. The Bristol Aero Collection are looking for any Brigand parts for the its display.
