The sky’s the limit

We stepped outside at lunchtime to watch 100 RAF planes fly over London in a historic display to mark the Royal Air Force’s 100th birthday celebrations

An estimated 70,000 people lined the streets of London to watch the spectacular display.

It was 100 years ago on 1 April, 1918 that the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service merged to create the RAF – the world’s first independent air service.
