The RAF Halton Radio Society has obtained a “Special” Event Callsign GB100HAL to mark the 100th Anniversary of RAF Halton. The Callsign will be used most Saturdays up until the end of the year.
Flying first started at Halton in 1913 as part of trials by the Army. In 1919 the RAF moved in, shortly after its creation, when the local estate was purchased by the War Department and handed to the RAF. You can find more information about RAF Halton on the Trenchard Museums web site at thisLink
