Return of the Roundel

In April 2018 the RAF celebrated its 100th birthday and RAF Woodvale decided to mark the occasion with the painting of the RAF Roundel (training) on the south facing Hanger Doors.

 

Old Hangar Doors

 

This was visible to any passing traffic on the Formby-by-Pass and quickly became a significant local landmark.  Following a restoration project on our Main Hanger earlier this year and the installation of new Hanger Doors the old roundel disappeared and we felt obliged to put the Roundel back were it belonged.

Royal Air Force Woodvale would like to thank two local companies for their support with the project. Tony Doolan Associates who painted the original roundel and who kindly came back to repeat the job in June 2019 and Scott Griffith's from Bromborough Paints who kindly donated all the paint.
