Crail to be partly destroyed

Crail, one of both Scotland's and Britain's best preserved airfields, is scheduled to have part of its eastern section destroyed for tree planting during Saturday and Sunday 19/20 March 2022. Shockingly described as 'an area blighted by tarmac' https://www.fife.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0029/161975/Crail-Community-Partnership-Kilminning-South-Community-Asset-Transfer-Application.pdf, this enormously historic and equally achieving airfield played a massive part in the winning of not only both World Wars but also the Cold War through training Russian translators.

ABCT is extremely closely monitoring developments, unquestionably hugely disrespectful to the airfield, all who served there and their families, as part of the national charity's operational remit.
