This latest edition we are reflecting on the recent amazing parade and flypast in London to commemorate and celebrate the centenary of the Royal Air Force. Personnel from RAF Shawbury were proud to contribute to this event by providing personnel to support the parade, the static aircraft display and off course the flypast.
There have been numerous events on base in support of RAF 100; one project with local schools stands out as it delivered presentations on the RAF's history, a model aircraft and aviation art competition and allowed us to reach to schools we had not previously engaged with. Myddle Primary School was the winning School with a fantastic collage depicting RAF 100. They received a very special visit to the base and souvenir RAF 100 books as their prize.
Also in this edition, you can also read about the support provided to the RAF Cosford Air Show behind the scenes here at RAF Shawbury and see some fabulous photographs taken by our photographers.
The RAF 100 Cocktail Party was also a huge success and raised a substantial amount for charity.
