RAF100 at Cosford – The Static Display

As touched on in my main review of this show, the static line-up at Cosford was truly incredible. Almost every aspect of the force’s history was covered across a sprawling line up with excellent set pieces in place throughout. While I didn’t manage to get a shot of every machine on display, this post takes you on a journey through the spread of machines and eras covered, focusing on those that fit the historic theme of this site.
