It is on our stunning Spitfire cover with the full-set of RAF Centenary stamps and special RAF Cranwell postmark dated 10th July 2018 - 100 days after the 100th anniversary and the day of the Centenary Flypast. This cover will be flown in Chinook (one of the aircraft involved in the celebrations) and we hope that it will be signed by the Chinook pilot.
The RAF 100 Parade and Flypast
The RAF100 Parade and Flypast was an incredible moment where onlookers witnessed the historic flypast with almost 100 aircraft, representing the RAF’s history, as they flew over Buckingham Palace. The flypast consisted of nealy 100 aircraft with almost 200 aircrew from 25 different RAF Squadrons, operating to and from 14 military stations and two civilian airfields. It was a spectacle never seen before and one that won’t be seen again for a very long time!
