The RAF100 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!
