London's week of RAF100 events

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

Thousands of servicemen and women will take part in a parade on The Mall.

Before this, invited guests will attend a special centenary service in Westminster Abbey. 

But you won’t need an invite to 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.

Visitors to London should come down early to see the London leg of the RAF100 Aircraft Tour on Horse Guards Parade, more information can be found here.

The RAF100 Baton Relay will also complete its 100 day journey on 10 July.

On the 11-12 July the 2018 Chief of Air Staff’s Air Power Conference (APC18) will take place  – this year’s theme is ‘Building the Next Generation Air Force’. The conference will cover a diverse range of contemporary topics and will hear from a high profile speakers, from across a variety of industries.
