What are you all doing on September 12th?
Why not come along to our Annual Baird Festival to be held at the
Airstrip 10.30 and Ettrick Bay 12.30!!!
Scottish aviation history was about to be made when in the very early morning of September 17th, 1910, the Baird Monoplane was taken by a Mr Scott on his horse-drawn wagon to Ettrick Bay – with its wide expanse of sand reminiscent of the Kitty Hawk N.C. site chosen by the Wright Brothers for their historic flight.
