That the Parliament congratulates Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre on the addition of a Miles M.2H Hawk Major aircraft to its collection; recognises that this Second World War-aircraft is very rare, with only 145 being made, and commends the volunteer-run centre on what it considers its significant achievement in acquiring this in the face of competition from other museums across the country.
