Newly commissioned pilot officer RAFA Duck is on his way to achieving 100 flying hours, as one of the 100 events to celebrate RAF Marham's centenary year.

He made his first flight in a Tornado from the west Norfolk airbase on the occasion of the rehearsal for the Queen`s Birthday flypast. He was then posted to RAF Coningsby where he was due to fly in a Typhoon and with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

RAFA Duck is the brainchild of Stan Stabler, branch secretary of the Downham Market Royal Air Forces' Association.

Association chairman Len Algar said: 'The object is for RAFA to fly in every type of aircraft in service with the RAF with the object of achieving 100 flying hours, which will be recorded in his own flying logbook when he will be presented to RAF Marham.'
