As 1 April 2024 marks 100 years of service for the Royal Canadian Air Force as a distinct military element, businesses, cities and landmarks across the world will be illuminating in Air Force Blue to celebrate the occasion.

In commemoration of the women and men who have, and continue to, serve Canada both at home and abroad, and in recognition of the positive impact the RCAF has had worldwide, we invite everyone to illuminate your residence, place of work, or elsewhere in blue to show your support. Share a picture on social media using the hashtags #RCAF100 and #100YearsOfFlyingBlue. Help honour those in the RCAF as we attempt to break a Guinness World Record for the most landmarks illuminated within 24 hours!

If you would like to register your participation in this event and have your building(s) added to the list of locations that will be taking part in Illuminations, please email Capt Aaron Niles at [email protected]. We look forward to sharing in this once in a lifetime opportunity with you!
