Airplane! at Aerospace Bristol

Wednesday 30th October | Doors: 19:15 | Film Start: 20:15 | Approx End: 22:15

Our annual screening of Airplane! in partnership with Aerospace Bristol. Watch this hilarious Eighties-spoof beneath the wing of Concorde Alpha Foxtrot. This iconic plane is the last of its kind to be built and the last to fly; it ended its journey in Bristol and is now displayed in a custom-built hangar, and you will have the opportunity to look onboard prior to the film starting.



1980 | 12A | 84 mins

Ted Striker, a traumatised fighter pilot veteran, desperately boards a flight in an attempt to win back his estranged flight attendant girlfriend. However, when a food poisoning outbreak incapacitates the flight team and many of the passengers, Ted is forced to confront his demons and take control in order to save the plane, and everyone else on board.

Watch this hilarious comedy beneath Concorde at Aerospace Bristol.
