What we do

We celebrate the history of the RAF between the years 1918-1965. Here is how we tell the story of the Royal Air Force and the men and women who served in it.

Edutainment

Talking to the public is one of the main things we do

Our main role is the entertainment and education of the public in all things RAF. We spent many hours researching and spend a good deal of time coming up with ways we can pass that information on so our audience goes away informed but entertained.

Re-enactment

Re-enactment, or Living history is one of the main things we do. This involves the re-creation by careful use of clothing props look of a certain given time. Rather we seek to give the viewer a glimpse of what things were like between the years 1918 -1955

Film and Television

We have often provided people for Film or Television. This range from extras to help set the scene to experts for interviews in documentaries.

Photography

The Tail End Charlies are available for various photography sessions. These could be specialist photographer days in order to augment an airframe or period buildings etc. We have also been used for promoting aircraft pleasure rides, museums and events.

What can we do for you?

We pride ourselves on being flexible with what we display. With enough notice we can portray almost anything the RAF did between the years 1939 and 1966. In 2018 we had the huge honour of being asked to display the Berlin Airlift at Horseguards parade by the RAF and more recently Airborne Observation Post by the organisers of the Cosford Airshow. So if there is something in particular that you would like to see represented at your event please get in touch. You can see some of the displays we have done in the past by visiting the Displays page.
