RAF100 & Red Arrows Flypast

Marking the Royal Air Force’s centenary this year, Farnborough International Airshow 2018 has chosen the RAF100 Appeal as its official charity.

The RAF’s attendance will include an RAF Red Arrows flypast as part of the Airshow’s legendary five-hour flying display. Along with this in-the-air activity, will also be a united RAF presence on the ground for visitors to be part of.

The RAF100 Appeal brings together: the Royal Air Force; the RAF Association; the RAF Benevolent Fund; the RAF Charitable Trust; and the RAF Museum to establish a legacy that matches the vision of Viscount Trenchard who steered the formation of the RAF in 1918.  All of these RAF Partners will be at the Farnborough Airshow.
