In 1928, Filton held it’s Great Air Pageant organised by the Bristol & Wessex Aeroplane Club, which had only been founded in the previous October. A show of all that Filton had become famous for with aerial displays and all the newest aviation technology to wow the crowds.

After the euphoria of an amazing event, the next day proved to bring the worst tragedy to befall two pilots whose lives were ahead of them.

Crafted by a self confessed history geek for no financial gain, who enjoys those stories from the past that might have been forgotten, The Backtracker History Show is first aired on Bradley Stoke RadioFM in Bristol, England, before being plonked onto the podcast stage for all to enjoy
