Bristol's geographical position on the Severn Estuary ensured its early economic success as a successful port welcoming home the tall ships from the West Indies laden with spices and spirits. But the city survived and flourished even when the port's dominance diminished. First it recognised the opportunities offered by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and the arrival of steam and railways, then at the start of the 20th century it was quick to realize the potential value of the aeroplane's invention and in 1910 opened Filton Airfield - a far-sighted decision which culminated in Bristol's involvement with the Concorde project. BAE Systems may have announced the airfield's closure (for December 2012) but aerospace and defence remains one of the city's main industries.
