2021 Open Weekend Cancelled

After careful consideration it has been decided to cancel our planned Fly-In and Open Weekend
on the 4th and 5th of September 2021. We were concerned that we would not be able to fully meet the expectations of our wonderful visitors so it has been reluctantly decided to cancel this years event.

However we will have a bigger and better Fly-In and Open Weekend in 2022 so
please watch our Facebook page for further information on this exciting event.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this change may cause.

Vic The War Horse of Montrose - New display unveiled

Friday 16th July 2021.
It was a very special afternoon for us here at Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre as we proudly unveiled our new display.

Vic, The War Horse of Montrose, was requisitioned in 1914 by a local vet for his son, Captain Alexander Wallace of Arbroath. Together they saw action at The Somme, Passchendaele and Amiens. Vic was one of the few horses that survived the War and, thanks to Captain Wallace, came home. But, the story did not end there........ Come along to see Captain Wallace's original jacket and medals and discover the full story.

To mark the unveiling we welcomed Lieutenant Colonel Katy Badham-Thornhill REME, Lesley McKenzie - Ambassador of War Horse Memorial as well as members of the Wallace family in a live link with the USA. We very much look forward to sharing this incredible story for many years to come.

The unveiling was shown on STV News and reported by the Courier Newspaper  click here to read
