Aircraft from the Yorkshire Air Museum will represent the British Air Services at an international commemoration this summer.

The museum’s AVRO 504 will help mark the international centenary of the Battle of the Somme in France on July 1, at the Thiepval Memorial in Picardy, northern France.

The air museum, at Elvington, has recently been acknowledged by the European Union as The Allied Air Forces Memorial, and has been invited by the Government to display the AVRO biplane fighter and exhibition, to represent the hundreds of Royal Flying Corps pilots who took part in the battle.
