Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Hillier said: "Our founders one hundred years ago would be astounded by our air and space capabilities today, and what we have achieved throughout our history. But they would also be reassured that the identity, ethos and self-belief that they breathed into the Royal Air Force at our birth remains as fresh and powerful today as then."
