Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre
The earliest air station in Britain, established 1913 by the Royal Flying Corps, dating from a period of manned flight when planes were, quite literally, kites.
The museum features a fascinating photographic archive and collection of aviation memorabilia, artefacts and vehicles relating to the flying history of Montrose.
The Air Station is also famous for its ghosts.There have been many unexplained sightings of apparitions and planes.
