Welcome to the Royal Air Force Coningsby website

Welcome to RAF Coningsby, a key frontline station in the defence of the United Kingdom for over 70 years. Our mission is simple: ‘To develop the future, deliver the present and commemorate the past of the Royal Air Force’s combat air power’. Our aircraft encompass almost 80 years of air warfighting capability: from the Lancaster, Dakota, Spitfires and Hurricanes of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, through the Tornado GR4, to the multi-role Typhoons of the Coningsby Wing squadrons. However, aircraft are nothing without people. RAF Coningsby is home to 3000 RAF personnel, civil servants and contractors who keep the station operational around the clock…and also to the families and loved ones who support us. Flanked by the Fens and the Wolds, we particularly value our links with both the local community and across Lincolnshire.

Whatever your reason for visiting these pages, I hope you find what you are looking for.
