This story is over

Thousands of people lined the streets of Lincoln city centre to see personnel from RAF Waddington and RAF Scampton march together for the first time to mark 100 years since both stations were founded.

The parade began at City Square at 11.30am on Friday, April 22, with the airmen marching through Lincoln High Street.

The march stopped at the war memorial, where the RAF personnel received a salute from the Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire and the Mayor of Lincoln.

Onlookers were also able to look to the skies to see a spectacular flypast by a Sentry E3-D aircraft based at RAF Waddington.

Both stations were exercising their privilege to march through the city centre after being granted the Freedom of Lincoln.
