The station was built on the site of the pre-war range at Tain. It opened in September 1941 in Fighter Command. In March and April 1942 the station was used by Halifaxes from Bomber Command as a forward station from which to attack the Tirpitz in Norway. In October 1942 the runways were extended and in February 1943 the station transferred to Coastal Command. It was used by B-24s including, from August 1944, 311 Squadron, previously in Bomber Command. RAF Tain is still a Ministry of Defence air weapons range.
