Royal Air Force
The Royal Air Force was formed on 1 April 1918, at a time when aviation was still in its infancy. As the world’s first independent air force, the RAF has set the standards for other nations to follow. The RAF Roundel is recognised around the world as being synonymous with capability, courage and innovation.
With exciting brand new state-of-the-art fast jets like the F-35B Lightning and disaster relief services provided by Chinook helicopters, the RAF's daily combination of tradition and cutting edge technology, allows the RAF to perform a variety of roles across the world, from delivering aid, responding to threats and ultimately protecting our skies.
The RAF also has one of the best-known aerobatic display teams in the world, the iconic Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows. At air shows across the UK and the world, literally millions of people experience and admire their split-second routines and precision flying every year. They are instantly recognisable for their iconic red, white and blue livery,smoke trails and trademark Diamond Nine formation.
