On Friday November 2nd Paul Ross of the Silver City Association will give a talk on the History of the airline.
Silver City was the airline which operated for 16 years from the late 1940s pioneering the carriage of cars by air between Kent and the North Coast of France, long before RO RO ferries were invented or the Channel Tunnel was dug. They used Bristol Freighters and subsequently had the bigger Super Freighters developed specially for the service. The company operated a total of 18 other types of aircraft including the Handley Page Hermes airliner, powered by four Bristol Hercules engines

Where we consider it appropriate we will advise Bristol Aero Talks attendees of events being organised by third parties that are likely to be of interest.
Currently there is no such event scheduled but a recent example was the large aero-model flying display put on by the Woodspring Wings model flying club at Yatton to which the Bristol Aero Collection Trust were invited.
