CNAPG - Bristol Freighter individual histories.

This site contains details of most of the Bristol Freighters that were built. This site is still far from complete and any assistance to help complete it would be most welcome.

If you can't find the information you are after on the page, drop us a line via e-mail. We still have a fair amount of notes to type up and we may be able to find the details that you are after in amoungst them.

To find the aircraft you are looking for, press the Ctrl & F keys. When the search box opens up, type in the registration/military serial you are after and click on "find next". Events which occured on an unknown date are listed with ? at the start of the entry. Some of these may have a date at the end of the entry which indicates a time which the entry was current. ie: ? The aircraft was acquired by Jac Picken, Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia. 2004. This means that I do not have the date when Jac acquired the aircraft, but I do know that she owned it during 2004.
