Bloodhound Restoration at Aerospace Bristol

Restoration of the national standard Bloodhound 2 missile and launcher is complete at Aerospace Bristol with acknowledgement to Brian Blestowe for his tremendous work and this photograph. You will have to wait until summer next year to be able to see it on display when the centre opens. Here is the kit awaiting transfer to the display area.
 
The eagle-eyed might have noticed that it has fuze aerials; the only Bloodhound missile in UK with these previously secret items which were removed prior to disposal. This is with thanks to the BL-64 museum in Switzerland who assisted us with many items to make this example complete.restored wm.jpg
