Scotland’s Secret Bunker has unveiled a new photo exhibition celebrating 65 years of the nearby Leuchars Airshow – almost three years to the day since the Red Arrows last flew over the Fife coast.

The Cold War museum, situated just 15 miles from RAF Leuchars, will host the exhibition – which runs until October 30 – which showcases a selection of 72 photographs spanning the 65-year history of the iconic airshow.

Leuchars Airshow was a chance for RAF Leuchars to showcase the Royal Air Force at its best and featured static and air displays from various defence aircrafts.

James Mitchell, owner of Scotland’s Secret Bunker, commented: “We’re delighted to be holding this very special exhibition as a celebration of the 65 years of the iconic Leuchars Airshow.

“We’ve hand selected some fantastic images from the archives of publisher DC Thomson and are delighted to put them on display for our visitors to look back with fond memories and learn more about the history of the show.”

Scotland’s Secret Bunker was built by the Ministry of Defence in the 1950s to help safeguard Scotland during the Cold War, decommissioned in the late 1980s and opened to the public in 1994. To see the exhibition, visit the attraction, which is open every day from 10am to 6pm. Find out more at www.secretbunker.co.uk
