    Tiger Puma to Celebrate RAF 230 Squadron 100 Years


    Royal Air Force, May 09, 2018 - RAF Benson - To mark the 100th Anniversary of both the 230 Squadron and the Royal Air Force, the Puma helicopter serial XW224 has taken an extra special trip to the paint shop.

    Some features on the aircraft make it truly unique including:

    - tiger stripes all over plus decals on the nose and rear of the cabin in honour of 230 Squadron's heritage as a Tiger Squadron

    - decals of the #RAF100 logo on the tail and cockpit door to mark the centenary of the RAF

    - grey in colour like other RAF air mobility assets to highlight the key role the Puma Force play in battlefield and humanitarian operations, delivering vital aid, equipment and personnel

    Squadron members think they all combine to give an incredibly eye-catching aircraft that commemorates 100 years of the Squadron and RAF, celebrates current activities and hopefully inspires the next generation.
