  • XV240 Nimrod cockpit is stored with Spey Bay Salvage on the old Dallachy airfield. Head south out of Bogmoor village on the B9104.

    Spotting Info
    From the club's website: "From Rothes and the south, take the A941 north towards Elgin. Pass the car sales garage at Fogwatt on your right, and shortly after the end of the 50 mph zone take the road on the left, signposted Birnie, just before the block of trees. Follow the Birnie road all the way to a T-junction. Turn left here and follow this road for half a mile until you come to the signpost on the left at the entrance to the airfield". Very friendly, ask for access.

    Spotting Info
    Home to the Moray Flying Club and 663 VGS. Head northwest out of Kinloss village on B9011 to Findhorn and the base is on right. DO NOT stop anywhere on the double yellow lines, there are regular Police patrols. A bit further down on the right, there is a crash gate, car park and viewing hut. Park on the grass well clear of the gate and walk back to the runway. XV244 Nimrod is displayed at this crash gate at the Morayavia Visitor Centre.

    Spotting Info
    Just southwest of Lossiemouth town. ZA475 Tornado is the gate guard on the east side. A polite request here sometimes results in you being taken to photograph the Tornado. There are two crash gates along Drainie Road on the southern perimeter that have views of the squadron here and their HASs plus distant views of the visitor ramp. The best views of the aprons are from the northside, alongside the golf course. Head west away from Lossiemouth town on the B9040 and you'll see the golf course on either side of you. After a few bends, there is a left hand turn on a right hand bend. Turn left just before this turn onto a track, park sensibly allowing access and for other cars to park and start walking along the track. The land rises and you can look down on the main runway and aprons. Also a fantastic place for photographs. Around mid-April every year, Lossiemouth hosts Exercise Joint Warrior and is well worth a visit during this busy period.
