10 July Centenary Celebrations

On 10 July, one hundred days after our official 100th birthday, join us in London for our centrepiece event, the RAF100 parade and flypast.

Here's a look at all the aircraft and the order they will fly in as they soar over London.

Over a thousand servicemen and women will take part in a parade on The Mall at 11:25am.

Her Majesty The Queen, accompanied by The Prince of Wales, will present a new Queen's Colour to the Royal Air Force at a ceremony to mark its centenary, on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace.

Then at 1:00pm The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, other Members of the Royal Family and members of the public will witness the historic flypast where up to 100 aircraft, representing the RAF’s history, will fly over Buckingham Palace. 

It promises to be a spectacle never seen before and one that won’t be seen again for a very long time.
