106 years ago on April 1st 1918 the Royal Air Force was founded, making it the first official and independent air force in the world. Since this day, the RAF has been involved in many conflicts throughout the 20th century. Perhaps the most famous one is the Battle of Britain, where ‘The Few’ defended British skies against the Luftwaffe, preventing a German invasion.

Some of the most famous aircraft of the RAF include the Hurricane, Typhoon, Spitfire, Lancaster, Meteor, Hunter and Harrier. Today, the RAF operates around 500 aircraft.
