Air-to-air refuelling squadron marks 100th birthday

An RAF squadron which provides air-to-air refuelling is celebrating its 100th birthday.

The 101 Squadron was formed at South Farnborough on 12 July 1917 and played a part in World War One, World War Two and the Falklands War.

It was initially a bomber squadron before taking on its air-to-air refuelling role in 1984.

It now operates an Airbus A330 Voyager out of RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.
