Leo Marriott is an established author with many published titles on aviation and naval subjects. In recent years he was the Senior Air Traffic Controller at Bristol's Filton Airport, which sadly closed at the end of 2012. To commemorate this famous airfield, which dates back to 1910 when the Bristol and Colonial Aeroplane Company was formed, he has written Bristol Filton Airport: End of an Era which outlines a brief history of the airfield and presents over 120 images showing activity through the last decade of operations.
Join Leo upstairs at Foyles in Bristol to celebrate the launch of this new book and to hear him talk about his memories of the airport. Copies of the book will be available exclusively from Foyles on the evening, and Leo will be signing copies on the night.
This event is free and there's no need to book - just turn up!
