MORAYVIA SADDENED AT THE PASSING OF THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH
The Board of Directors and members of Morayvia extend their deepest and most sincere condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family on the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
Since our formation in 2012 the Royal family and indeed the Duke himself has been a keen follower of the project and we were delighted when His Royal Highness granted us permission to name our Nimrod aircraft XV244 “Duke of Edinburgh” and to carry his Royal emblem on tail of the aircraft.
During a private visit some years ago both Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh took time out of a visit to the Northeast to visit Kinloss and see for themselves XV244 resplendent with its royal titles added.
The Duke of Edinburgh, the former Honorary Air Commodore of RAF Kinloss will be fondly remembered for his passion for Moray and his kind support in helping us bring our project to where we are now.
