On 1 April 2018, the Royal Air Force celebrated its 100th birthday. To mark the occasion, this gallery presents a selection of aerial photographs which reflect the history and achievements of the RAF during the Second World War and Cold War. These include wartime-reconnaissance and peacetime-survey photographs of locations around the world.

Following the advice of UK and Scottish Governments, NCAP has now returned to limited operations in our offices.
We are now able to process orders for not-yet-digitised aerial imagery, to revised delivery timescales.
HES is currently undertaking essential maintenance on our web services. This will limit access to services in the following ways:
- Subscription access for HES online services will be unavailable (Scran, NCAP)
- Image purchasing options will be limited (Canmore, Britain from Above, Scran, NCAP)
- Any enhanced services which require a log in will be unavailable (My Canmore, Britain from Above contributions, Scran contribute)
General access to these services will all continue. Enquiries will still be able to be submitted.
We anticipate services to be restored from Monday 1st February 2021.
