As I continue my (moderately successful) effort to catch-up with everyone, I do appreciate your work. Here is another great site. I hope you enjoy Andy’s writing as much as I do. He creates fantastic pieces about very important history. As we move further away from World War II, we risk losing much of that story. Andy keeps the story alive. Those in Britain can experience this history by following his trails. Importantly, Aviation Trails allows us to visits these airfields even if we are not in Britain.
Continuing on in Trail 53, Scotland’s east coast, we visit another Royal Naval Air Station, this one, a satellite of RNAS Crail, is not quite so well preserved. However, with that said, a number of buildings do still exist, and whilst most are on private land, some are visible from the public road.
Sitting not far from Scotland’s east coast and a short distance from the parent airfield at Crail, we visit an airfield that had a short military life, but one that saw many squadrons use it. With these squadrons came a multitude of aircraft types, but one in particular stood out as the predominant type- the Fairy Swordfish, a biplane that became famous with the Royal Naval Air Service.
On this trip, we visit another of Scotland’s relics, this time the former Royal Naval Air Station at Dunino.
RNAS Dunino (HMS Jackdaw II, HMS Merlin III).
