Comment: 2018 was of course the year the Royal Air Force celebrated its 100th birthday and events and airshows throughout the year took this theme and ran with it! However, the pinnacle of the year’s celebrations had to be the service’s own flypast over central London on 10th July, the formation centred on Buckingham Palace where the Queen, members of the Royal Family and 65,000 to 70,000 people were gathered to watch 103 RAF aircraft pass over in a 9 minute 15 second window, the stream stretching across 15 kilometres of sky.

Poignantly, despite the formation representing front line RAF hardware, as I write this in October 2019, two of the types flown, namely the Tornado GR4 and Tucano T1, are no longer in service.
