Plans for the international celebration of the RAF’s Centenary received a boost today as two civilian owned Vampire jet fighters join the flying display. The Cold War aircraft, from the Norwegian Air Force Historical Squadron, will be painted in special Royal Air Force livery for the 2018 season to mark the RAF’s Centenary. The 1950s jets were some of the earliest production fighters in existence – both of these examples having been licence built in Switzerland.
The official international celebration of the RAF’s Centenary will be held at the Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire on 13-15 July and will feature aircraft and pilots from around the world – as well as an estimated audience of 180,000 spectators.
