The Imperial War Museum at Duxford, one of the country’s most historic airfields, played host to the Royal Air Force (RAF) during its Battle of Britain Air Show this weekend (22nd-23rd September 2018), in a collaboration which saw vintage and modern aircraft fly together in celebration of 100 years of RAF history.
On the ground, air show goers were treated to a glimpse into the RAF’s next century, with the opportunity to view a concept model of a brand-new, next-generation fighter jet, created by the Team Tempest partnership. Displayed alongside two of the most iconic current-serving RAF aircraft – the Chinook and the Typhoon – the “Tempest” fighter jet (provided by BAE Systems) proved to be a popular attraction, having only been seen once before in the UK at its initial unveiling in July.
For those who couldn’t get tickets to the air show, the latest release of the RAF100 Augmented Reality Flypast App includes the “Tempest” concept model as well as many of the RAF’s most technologically-advanced aircraft. Available to download today from the App Store and Google Play, the App – RAF100Flypast – has been created in partnership with students from Lincoln University.
