History information

A Flying School was opened by the R. N. A. S. at Vendome in November, 1916, and gradually expanded; the choice of the site was dictated by the fact that the winter weather in Central France is more suitable for flying training than it is in England. There are now over 20, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site.
