Heart of Scotland Air Show - Perth June 5, 2010

 Christopher Markwell, Andrew Baird II, Andrew Baird III

 This major airshow was held in Perth at Scone airport to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Scotland's first Airshow (UK's second) held at Lanark in 1910 - a show which more than 250,000 curious spectators over its 5 days - we believe including Andrew Baird (who had also attended the first show in 1909 at Blackpool). 

The 2010 show was pleased to host Andrew's son Andrew II (now in his 91st year) and his grandson Andrew III and his wife Dorothy, who saw their pioneering relative honoured as the only early aviator to be specifically included with an article in the show's souvenir programme.
