Welcome to Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre. Montrose was the location for Great Britain’s first operational military airfield and was established by the Royal Flying Corps in February 1913.
The Heritage Centre aims to show the human side of the Air Stations past with a collection of contemporary photographs, artefacts and memorabilia. These not only tell of the history of the airfield but also the story of the men and women who served there and those who lived in the area.
It is an independent, fully accredited, museum run entirely by volunteers and has received The Queens Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award for volunteer groups in the UK.
There is something for everyone, aviation, RFC, RAF, WWI, WWII, local history, ghosts, Meteor and Vampire jets plus a full size replica Sopwith Camel and Spitfire.
Volunteers are building a full size replica of a WWI B.E.2a aircraft. The only one in Scotland, come and see how they are doing.
