What you need to know before your trail

From its genesis in the horrors of the First World War when pilots were open to the elements in craft made of little more than wood and fabric, to the iconic air battles of the Second World War, through to the lifesaving missions carried out in today’s trouble zones, RAF 100 looks at the men, women and aircraft that are at the heart of this great service.
