Old Photograph Royal Air Force Photographer Leuchars Fife Scotland

Old photograph of a Royal Air Force photographer in Leuchars near St Andrews, Fife, Scotland. In 1911 construction started on what would become RAF Leuchars. This Royal Air Force station would host a great variety of aircraft in its time, protecting the North of the United Kingdom from airborne threats until the final QRA, Quick Reaction Alert, aircraft of 1 Squadron departed RAF Leuchars in September 2014. The Station has since been handed over to the Army as of March 2015. The station remains an RAF diversion airfield for aircraft in distress and QRA aircraft from RAF Lossiemouth.
