If you like aeroplanes and would like to learn more about them, then 2010 will be a great year for you.
For children there'll be amazing workshops taking place in schools where you can find out how aeroplanes fly, make paper aeroplanes and tissue paper balloons, draw pictures, make collages, create poems and stories, and meet some very interesting people who work in aviation.
There will also be competitions, fact sheets, games and puzzles added to this website throughout the year so you can learn, make and do things at home.
In 2010 you'll learn about the important achievements of the past, how they have helped to make the present and how they will go on to help build the future.

Wallace and Gromit Take Flight
Wallace and Gromit are big fans of flight, as the compilation above shows, and they've given us an idea for a BAC 100 competition for children. Create a picture of Wallace and Gromit flying in one of the 'Bristol' aeroplanes or helicopters – there are lots of photos on this website to give you ideas. You can use felt tips, crayons, paints, collage – whatever you like. There will be aviation-themed prizes for the best entries in each age category: 7 and under, 8 to 11, 12 to 16.
Send your picture to BAC 100, Bristol Creative Projects, Leigh Court, Abbots Leigh, Bristol BS8 3RA. Write your name, address and age on the back of the picture. Closing date: Friday 26 November 2010.
We are unable to return pictures to senders but a selection will be scanned and added to the BAC 100 website.
