The Aircraft Factories

Aircraft factories in the north of the city became a target too. The Bristol Aeroplane Company at Filton was making Blenheim, Beaufort and Beaufighter aircraft and aero-engines for the RAF. There was also an aero-engine factory at Kingswood and an aircraft factory at Yate.

Other targets

Bridges, railway tunnels, power stations, gas works, factories, radio stations, fuel depots, airfields, army training centres and waterworks were also on the list of Luftwaffe targets.
