Hundreds celebrate century of South West aviation

More than 700 people have gathered at Bristol Cathedral to celebrate a century of aviation in the South West.

Pioneers of the aerospace industry attended the special service led by the Bishop of Bristol, The Right Reverend Michael Hill.

They remembered Sir George White, founder of the Bristol Aeroplane Company, and the industry's involvement in the two world wars.

The creation of the double-deck Airbus A380 was also marked.
