RAF Day - Private Event

10 May 2018

Past Veterans at our London site

2018 marks 100 years of the RAF and on Thursday 10 May the Royal Air Force Museum is inviting Veterans and current serving RAF personnel from across the world to celebrate RAF Day at the Museum. 

During this special reunion, hosted by Museum staff, our RAF colleagues and Veterans will be treated to a special preview of our brand-new Hangar 1, which houses two new, innovative galleries exploring the first 100 years of the RAF, its roles today and invites visitors to imagine its future contribution and technology. The hangar has been redeveloped specifically for the RAF 100th anniversary so will provide a fitting space for veterans and serving personnel to share their stories.

As part of our RAF Centenary Programme, the Museum will also be launching a new digital project called RAF Stories; an online digital project which aims to inspire participants to share accounts of the Royal Air Force. RAF Stories seeks to find stories, not just from former and serving personnel, but also from their friends and family as well as extended partners who work closely with the RAF. Our RAF Stories team will be on hand on the day to collect stories and provide information on this new online archive.

The day’s events also include a flypast (details TBC), live music, tours, refreshments and the chance to catch up with colleagues old and new. With service men and women joining in from across the country, it is set to be a truly memorable and sentimental gathering.  

The invitation to attend is open to all who have and who do serve in the RAF and we hope that all squadrons and bases base can be represented.  

The event is open exclusively to RAF Veteran and current personnel. To register your interest please email or call 020 8358 4849.

Please note: This is a private event for current and ex-Serving personnel and their guests. As a result the Museum will be closed to the public all day on 10 May.
