Following on from the huge success in organising the “100 Years of Co-operation” with the Royal Air Force and French Air Force in Central Paris in late May, attended by the Chiefs of the Air Staff, (see image CAS and Dignitaries) the Yorkshire Air Museum was commissioned to display our newly refurbished example of a WWI Royal Aircraft Factory BE2c aircraft at the National RAF100 Ceremony in Horse Guards Parade, London, taking place between the 6th and 10th July.

Many hundreds of hours of painstaking work have been undertaken by our Aircraft Heritage Team to completely rebuild the B.E2c, which is now looking resplendent in the heart of London ready for public display, along with a host of other aircraft that the Royal Air Force have brought together for this prestigious occasion, culminating with the major flypast over the capital on the 10th July.

Ian Reed, Museum Director, comments: “As the acknowledged Allied Air Forces Memorial of Europe, the Yorkshire Air Museum has been pleased to fully support the Royal Air Force in not one, but two major international events in the capital cities of France and England within the last 3 months.”
