Concorde 216; Please exert whatever pressure you can to sort it out. This aircraft should be alongside its associated exhibits in a dedicated facility that can preserve this icon. The educational value of this resource is immense and forms a natural stepping stone into discovery of the associated industry, technology and (particularly) creativity that made this remarkable endeavour possible. It should be an inspiration to the young not a decaying testament to our society's decline.

I do think that a website such as this with links to the aviation website that I previously worked on as a research assistant, acts not only as an educational tool for present and future generations but also as a sense of regional pride. I am all for positivity in the present poor economic climate. Well done everyone involved.

I don't know if I will be around to celebrate the next anniversary of any description. I think my contribution to the aerospace industry in the last 50 years 'made a difference'. Many thanks to those people who have put pictures and sounds to my memories and my 23 years at RR and 23 years at Airbus Uk. Thank you.

This years activities and events have been greatly enjoyed by myself and my family. We have been to many of the events and really enjoyed ourselves.

The website has just the right level of information so it's easy to find what you need. The film clips were a great addition and I have sent links to family, friends and neighbours.

I have learnt so much more about the story of aviation in Bristol, and the Bristol company in particular. It's kept me and the family interested and educated and filled the missing gap while the industrial museum is being renovated. Thank you!

I hope the exhibition continues for a long time. I feel that is important to have lots of school visits, because, as the song says, "Children are our future". Congratulations to all involved. Keep up the good work!

As a member of the Bristol Aero Collection, I am delighted to have taken part in some of the activities and events of this Centenary year. I think the whole project has been handled very professionally and has been an enormous benefit to the community from Primary schools through to Pensioners.

Please pass on my thanks to all those involved in making this year of celebration happen. Your work with the website, the publications, the activities and events brought together not only aerospace and related companies but also civic leaders and members of the general public who make Bristol a fine place in which to work and live.

When the time comes for the public to understand what is going to take place to enable Concorde G-BOAF to be housed in a New Aviation Museum would you please assist the Concorde Trust with the public involvement in supporting and funding the build and commissioning programme.

The exhibition has a good balance of artefacts, audio-visual and interactive items. It is well set out and, while clearly well-researched, does not 'overload' the visitor. These factors enhance its suitability for all age groups and make it appealing as both an educational and family event.
