EDITORS COMMENTS
The Bristol Boxkite, an enhanced rendition of the Henry Farman biplane, stands proudly in this vintage photograph. Constructed in 1910 by the British & Colonial Aeroplane Co. Ltd (later known as the Bristol Aeroplane Company), it quickly became a symbol of aviation excellence. With a total of 78 units manufactured at Filton prior to World War One, this remarkable aircraft marked Bristol's first triumphant foray into the world of flight. Captured at Brooklands and immortalized in Flight magazine on March 18th, 1911, this particular specimen bears the distinguished number 17. Its sleek design and innovative features were showcased with pride within these pages, captivating readers and fueling their fascination with aviation advancements. As we gaze upon this historical print today, we are transported back to an era where pioneers dared to dream beyond earthly boundaries. The Bristol Boxkite represents not only a technological breakthrough but also serves as a testament to human ingenuity and determination. Though its commercial use may not be mentioned here, one cannot help but imagine the awe-inspiring impact that such an aircraft would have had on those fortunate enough to witness its graceful flight through the skies above. This photograph encapsulates a pivotal moment in aviation history when dreams took flight and forever changed our perception of what is possible among the clouds.
