R34 Memorial, East Fortune Airfield
The runways have mostly gone and the hangers are now used by the Museum of Flight.  But this small plaque remembers that East Fortune is where the first ever return crossing by air of the Atlantic started and ended in 1919 by the R34.  R34 was a military Airship built by Beardmore's at Inchinnan in Renfrewshire.  [url=http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=355172&Y=678361&A=Y&Z=115/] Map location. [/url]
