In Dorset Skies Images of Aviation

by Colin Cruddas

In Dorset Skies Images of Aviation Synopsis

Dorset, a county of outstanding natural beauty, can rightly lay claim to another exceptional feature - its aeronautical heritage. Some purists would say that such a claim owes much to the county boundary changes that, in 1974, brought significant parts of Hampshire into Dorset's fold. To a new generation however this distinction borders on the academic and a look at the broader course of history reveals that such changes always have and presumably always will take place. There is no doubt that Bournemouth and its immediate environs have contributed greatly to the county's aviation history and the many previously unpublished images of this major centre and of other locations throughout the region within In Dorset's Skies provide a fascinating overview of Dorset's aerial heritage.
