It opened in May 1939 and concrete runways were built in late 1942. RAF Lossiemouth was a training station and, in April 1940, 20 Operational Training Unit was formed and stayed until the end of the war. It was equipped with Ansons and Wellingtons. The station’s location also made it suitable for temporary detachments from a number of operational Bomber Command squadrons throughout the war for attacks on targets in Norway and the North Sea, including several operations against the Tirpitz. It is still an operational RAF station.
