The RAF100 Aircraft Tour takes off in Cardiff

Thousands of people joined us in Cardiff to see aircraft from the last 100 years on display outside Cardiff City Hall.

The event, which saw over 23,000 visitors enjoy the first leg of the RAF100 Aircraft Tour, was bathed in sunshine for the full three days.

The next big date for the tour is 6-9 July on Horse Guards Parade in Central London.

Harrison John James from the 1st St Mellons Scouts in Cardiff wanted to tell people the tour about his grandad, John James, who served in the 1960s. "He loved his time in the RAF" says Harrison.
