AIR STATION EVENTS
More information on Angus Heritage Week and the Open Doors Event on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August when the Heritage Centre will be free of charge to visitors will follow soon.
On August 3rd 1914, No2 Squadron left Montrose to lead the Royal Flying Corps to war. The first British aircraft to land in France was one of their aircraft, a BE2 piloted by Lt Harvey-Kelly seen in this photograph taken at Lythe near Whiby on his flight South.
This has inspired the ‘First in France 1914’ project for which the Heritage Centre has been awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The event is being organised by Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre in partnership with the Royal Air Force and the Western Front Association. The event is also supported by Angus Council and Museums Galleries Scotland.
