Vote for the greatest Post-WW2 RAF fighter jet/ New RAFBF microsite

Here at the RAF Benevolent Fund (RAFBF) we have produced a special new microsite to celebrate our 90th anniversary - the site is called "90 Faces of the RAFBF" and can be viewed at the following link:

90 faces of the RAF Benevolent Fund

To celebrate our 90 years of work since being established by Lord Trenchard in 1919, our new site features 90 stories about our beneficiaries, history, fundraisers and supporters. If you visit you can listen to Winston Churchill's famous 1951 radio appeal on behalf of the RAFBF, watch videos of beneficiaries and serving RAF personnel describe how we help, learn about the enormous support we enjoy among the RAF family and vote in our poll -

The Poll

We are running a poll for the greatest post-WW2 RAF fighter jet - at the moment the English Electric Lightning is pulling way ahead, so join in the vote and let us know what you think!

The Hawker Hunter has now surged ahead of the Lightning in our poll for the greatest post WW2 RAF fighter jet, with the Phantom, Tornado and Harrier fighting it out for third place.

We will close the poll on 7th September, so please do add your vote now by visiting:

Thanks to all who have voted so far in our poll. With nearly 3,000 votes now cast, the Hunter still leads but the Lightning has somewhat surprisingly dropped away from second place, overtaken by the Phantom and Tornado - the Phantom in particular having made a sudden surge... Do please vote if you haven't already (or perhaps even if you have) - the poll's open for another 10 days.

Does no-one feel a little sorry for the Vampire? First jet aircraft to make, as wikipedia puts it, an "intentional and planned" landing and take-off on an aircraft carrier...

Our poll to find the best post-WW2 fighter jet has now closed. With over 5,000 votes cast, we can announce that the winner is the Tornado - you can review the results in full at:

The Hunter enjoyed a really comfortable lead for a long time, then was suddenly overtaken by the Phantom and Tornado at the last minute.

Thanks for all your votes, and look out for our new poll coming next week!
