MONKTON: Early regional airport
NOTES: In Tail Ends Of The Fifties by Peter G Campbell, in Chapter 26, Dugald Cameron tells us this: "Prestwick was a natural airport due to a benign curiosity of its local weather. It had been recommended by Jimmy Jeffs of Croydon to William Sword when he was developing his Midland and Scottish Air Ferries around 1932-33 and his aircraft had used a field at Monkton as well as the beach at Prestwick during that period."
