Visitors will be able to get up close to a mixture of active, heritage and replica aircraft on display, all of which have played a major part in the RAF’s 100 year history.

The new F35-B Lightning II - Britain’s new, state of the art stealth combat aircraft, that has just come into service - will be included in the free Victoria Square event.

The exhibition forms part of the RAF’s centenary celebrations which have been taking place across the country since April.
