Wings to War Exhibition

The University of Glasgow commemorates the centenary of the Royal Air Force by highlighting the story of the true but often forgotten father of the service.

Wings to War Exhibition

About Wings to War Exhibition

Lieutenant General Sir David Henderson, one of the University’s former students who learned to fly at 49, played a vital role in the foundation of the RAF on 1 April 1918.

Now the University will highlight his story as part of an RAF centenary exhibition which also features stunning paintings by Professor Dugald Cameron OBE, one of the UK’s leading aviation artists.

Professor Cameron’s art depicts a selection of representative aircraft flown by the RAF from 1918 to the present day. It is being display as part of the exhibition - Wings to War: Glasgow and the Centenary of the Royal Air Force - which opens to the public on Wednesday 28 March, 2018.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Wings to War Exhibition are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
