Read all about the work that goes into the display work-up, the all-important Public Display Approval and key moments from across one of the team’s busiest ever airshow seasons. And if that weren’t enough, you’ll get to see what daily life entails on an operational RAF squadron. A project of this size has never been attempted with a frontline asset before, but thanks to the Royal Air Force, Joint Helicopter Command and RAF Odiham, Tom has been able to capture an insight into the RAF’s centenary year in all its glory.
