Get your hands on a unique piece of RAF history

Trenchard Returns is an exceptional piece of aviation art that commemorates the Royal Air Force’s centenary year. It shows the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Trenchard Formation over last year’s RAF Cosford Air Show on 10 June 2018.

This breath-taking painting, commissioned to hang in the Station Commander’s outer office, was painted by Keith Burns, a member of The Guild of Aviation Artists – GavA.

We are delighted to announce that a limited number of prints are now available for purchase, with profits going to the RAF Benevolent Fund, the RAF Association, The Royal Air Force Museum, Cosford, The Royal Air Force Museum, London and the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust.
