100 super cars travelled in convoy across the Forth Road Bridge to Broomhall House Estate in Dunfermline today to mark 100 years of the RAF.
An array of cars travelled over the bridge, including a Bugatti Veyron, Lamborghini Countach, McLaren 675LT at an event to raise funds for the RAF’s leading welfare charity, the RAF Benevolent Fund.
Guests were joined by RAF veteran Arthur Reid, who flew with Bomber Command during the Second World War.
There was also a Tiger Moth flypast, a static Spitfire aircraft display and guided tours of the Broomhall House collection.
The Forth has special significance for the RAF. During the Second World War, Spitfires from the City of Edinburgh squadron were responsible for shooting down the first German aircraft during the conflict, when the German air force launched waves of bombing raids targeting the nearby Rosyth naval base in the Forth.
Baz Dale, Area Director at the RAF Benevolent Fund, said: “It was an incredible sight to see all of these beautiful cars, vintage and modern super car models, form a convoy over one of the most recognisable bridges in the British Isles, especially with the Pipes and Drums providing a very Scottish soundtrack.
“The RAF’s centenary celebrations are a great opportunity for the RAF Benevolent Fund to spread the word about the vital work we do supporting RAF personnel, past and present and their families.”
