About This Book

Scotland's role in the Second World War aerial conflict is well documented, but its involvement in this field in the First World War has been largely ignored and few physical remains of First World War aerodromes survive today. Seeking to redress the balance, Malcolm Fife's detailed history charts many important bases and fields around the country. Beginning in the pre-war period, he discusses seaplane stations, airship stations, Naval, defence, training and manufacturing sites, before documenting the changes in the post-war years. From Turnhouse, near Edinburgh, and Turnberry, to Royal Naval Air Service aerodromes such as East Fortune and Donibristle, this illustrated guide will appeal to both military and aviation enthusiasts and interested locals.
