Woodhaven, Fife

Woodhaven used to be a small village between Newport-on-Tay and Wormit in Fife, Scotland but over the years due to expansion of both these villages it is now just the name for a harbour. During World War II there was a flying boat station at Woodhaven operating four PBY5 Catalina aircraft manned by Flight A of 333 Squadron Royal Norwegian Air Force. The Norwegian personnel were based at RAF Lechuars along with their colleagues in Flight B who flew land based Mosquito aircraft.
