The Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre (MASHC) has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Royal Air Force Museum to establish a partnership to foster their collective interests through collaborative programmes and other shared learning opportunities.
There already existed close links between the two organisations, the MASHC having received Miles Hawk Major DG590/G-ADMW from the RAFM collection, which had kept the machine in storage for many decades. Now they will actively seek opportunities to share collections where practicable and will consider special partnership loan terms.
RAF Museum CEO Maggie Appleton said, “We are delighted to be strengthening our ties with Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre. At the RAF Museum it is our duty to share the RAF’s stories with the world through our archives, collections and exhibits. Further to that, we also see it as our responsibility to work with other organisations to both learn from them and share our own experience of running a museum and engaging with audiences. We look forward to this deepening of our relationship with our friends at MASHC.”
