Bristol Freighter
Walkaround Gallery

Here’s a Bristol Freighter walkaround of the bird we have at Moorabbin and also the one at Point Cook RAAF Museum. The Moorabbin airframe has many more bits attached now so I’ll take some more pics soon and load them up.

I’ve had a big soft spot for the Freighter since building the Airfix kit as a kid. I was fascinated by the nose doors, the ramps and the fact that you could drive a car into it. I guess I wasn’t aware of Hercs and Galaxys at that stage.

Anyway, the ANAM Freighter VH-ADL, is one of our more recent acquisitions. (Do you like the way I say “our” as if I had something to do with it? I am a volunteer down there but I steer clear of the decision-making! I am happy playing with the exhibits.)

The Point Cook machine, A81-1, is ex-RAAF and has quite a history. I might tell you about it one day. (When I find out.)
