Breathtaking photos give glimpse into life in RAF from gruelling training to hair-raising parachute displays

BREATHTAKING images reveal a glimpse into life in the Royal Air Force, from incredible mid-air manouevres to hair-raising parachute displays.

More than 900 photographs were entered into the Royal Air Force's 2020 photography competition, with the winner of the People's Choice award decided by public vote.

The breathtaking images capture the RAF at its finest, with personnel captured performing jumping out of planes, winching down from helicopters and taking part in gruelling training exercises.

Due to the pandemic there were only four categories for the photography competition this year: Personnel, Current RAF Equipment, RAF Operations and Exercises and the 'People's Choice'.

A judge on this year's panel, freelance photographer Edmond Terakopian, said: "Looking through the excellence of work given a difficult year, dealing with a pandemic, it’s been great to see not only great photography documenting some dramatic scenes where the photographers are looking past the norm and digging deeper to discover nuances and multiple levels to their work.''
