Neptunus on parade at RAF centenary celebration
Northampton-based temporary structure specialists Neptunus helped the Royal Air Force celebrate its 100th anniversary by creating a special facility for VIPs on London’s Horse Guards Parade incorporating a static display of aircraft.
Tens of thousands of people packed The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace as 100 planes took part in a spectacular flypast in front of The Queen and senior members of the Royal Family, who viewed the proceedings from the Palace balcony.
The Royal party looked on as 22 Typhoon jets spelt out 100 as they flew in formation over London. It was the first time the RAF’s latest aircraft the F-35 Lightning stealth fighters had been seen over London, and The Red Arrows concluded the flying display by streaming red, white and blue smoke as they soared over the crowds.
