Classic Fighters 2017 - Bristol Freighter ZK-CPT

A unique aircraft type at Classic Fighters 2017 was the resident Bristol B 170-31 Freighter ZK-CPT (c/n 13126).  Its history has been posted previously on this blog at:

I think this is the only mobile Bristol Freighter in the world, and it taxied up and down the crowd line during the lunch break, with a few lucky passengers - enlarge the photo by clicking on it twice and see a couple of children waving from the hatch above the cockpit.

It also now doubles as a memorial to Safe Air as the name has now disappeared from Woodbourne being replaced by the Airbus name.


  1. Could it ever be made airworthy again?

  2. I don't think so, but as with our recent experience with Mosquitos anything is possible with enough dosh.
