The RAF Stories series of talks form part of the RAF Museum's RAF Stories project. Launched as part of the Museum’s RAF Centenary Programme, RAF Stories is an online collection accessible to everyone to submit, share and explore stories of people’s personal connections to the RAF. In the RAF’s 100th year, the project will inspire the public to reveal the service’s influence on their lives.

Visit www.rafstories.org to explore some of the fantastic stories collected so far and to find out how you can share your story.  To contact the RAF Stories team please email us.
