Royal Air Force celebrates centenary

Royal Air Force (RAF) celebrated its centenary year.

The Red Arrows and three of Britain’s new F-35 Lightning stealth fighters were among the 100 aircraft taking part in a flypast over Buckingham Palace, along with Puma and Chinook helicopters, a Lancaster bomber, Spitfires, Hurricanes, Tornados and 22 Typhoons helping to spell out “100” in the skies over London.

“Tenacity, skill and gallantry have been your hallmarks. I remember the Battle of Britain being fought in the skies above us and we shall never forget the courage and sacrifice of that time,” the Queen said at the event.
