Wings over Stonehenge Royal Flying Corp’s First bombing Sortie

The Wings over Stonehenge series of walks continues on the 17th of September with another opportunity to walk in the historic Wiltshire landscape. See where the Bristol Boxkite made its first flight in 1910 and where the first British military aeroplane unit was formed in 1911. These walks will cover how aviation developed on Lark Hill from 1909-1914 and how the RFC carried out its first bombing sortie. These walks aim to recreate the period with contemporary photographs and maps and include viewing the early hangars and crash sites.

Walk will take place on the 17th of September and start at 10:30am.
