Saw this in the Herald this morning. A new website recording the history of aviation in Scotland, along with trails for places to visit. There are STEM resources for younger people. Looks interesting.

Looks like an RAF Museum initiative, so the emphasis unsurprisingly seems to be on military aviation, but a promising start.

... who are advised not to click on the site's Terms and Conditions (https://www.scottishaviation.org.uk/terms-and-conditions), where they would learn (somewhat ungrammatically) that "You must be at least 18 years of age or be accessing the Site [sic] or have the full consent of a parent or guardian to access the website."

WTF ?

Maybe it's just in case the little darlings come accross some event where someone died or found a slightly racist historical comment. They could be scarred for life reading about such things.:)
By the way, can I still call a Scotsman "Jock"? Or will I be arrested?

Only when requesting that he stop his tickling.

Jock is a general term but when In Glasgow "Jim" is probably better.
