    During a visit to the Bristol Aeroplane Company's works at Filton today the Duke of Edinburgh told officials that he was looking forward to flying in a Britannia at the earliest opportunity.

    The main reason for the visit was to see the Britannias in full production. The Duke also inspected the Bloodhound rocket.

    During the morning His Highness went to the Westland Works at Yeovil, and there flew a Neetland "Nidgeon" helicopter for the fire tire. He was at the controls for a ten-minute flight.
