"At noon on Thursday, two aircraft from the pioneering days of Captain Ted Fresson will mark the 75th anniversary of the beginning of air travel in the Highlands and Islands.
The date commemorates the anniversary of the world’s longest continually running air route, between Kirkwall and Inverness.
A cairn will be unveiled at Kirkwall’s original Wideford airstrip site topped by a bronzed casting, created by Orcadian sculptor, Gary Gibson.
Meanwhile, at 11am on May 8, Scott Grier, chairman of Loganair, will unveil a brass plaque at Kirkwall Airport to commemorate the occasion."
