RAF’s 98th Birthday Display – Horse Guards Parade – 2 April 2016

To celebrate the ninety-eighth anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force three aircraft from the RAF Museum were positioned in front of the Admiralty Extension (often referred to as the Old Admiralty) on Horse Guards Parade. The Typhoon is a mobile replica usually to be seen at the likes of the Farnborough International Airshow, and the Spitfire LFXVIe ‘TB675’ (actually RW393) and Sopwith Snipe are exhibits briefly allowed out from the RAF Museum at Hendon. The anniversary event took place on the Friday 1 April, which was also used to promote the build up to the centenary in 2018. The images here depict various stages of the aircraft’s removal the following day.
