The RAF is the oldest and longest serving air force in the world and 2018 marks its 100th anniversary. To celebrate this historic occasion, Boundless have organised an exclusive event at the RAF Museum in Hendon. This one-off VIP gala dinner will also give you the opportunity to view new state-of-the-art exhibitions First 100 Years of the RAF and Now and The Future.

The evening will begin with a drinks reception in the museum’s Historic Hangars under the wings of a Second World War Lancaster Bomber and alongside famous aircraft such as the Spitfire and Tornado. Guests will then move to the newly refurbished Hangar 1 to dine beneath the wings of a magnificent Short Sunderland flying boat. This particular aircraft was launched in 1944 and made 11 operational flights – during the evening you’ll have a chance to step on board to get a real sense of what it must have been like to be a crew member on this fantastic plane. There will also be live music from the era and a photographer will be on hand to provide complimentary souvenir pictures of your evening.

Guest speaker will be Michael Napier, who joined the RAF in 1978 and qualified as a fast-jet pilot in 1985. Flying Tornados, his military career encompassed both the Cold War and operations over Iraq after the Gulf War. On leaving the RAF in 1997, he joined British Airways and has over 15,000 hours’ flying experience. He’s written for a variety of aviation magazines and is the author of numerous books, including his latest title The Royal Air Force: A Centenary of Operations.
