The Royal Air Force (RAF) is the United Kingdom's aerial warfare force. It was formed towards the end of the First World War on 1 April 1918. Since its formation, the RAF has taken a significant role in British military history. In particular, it played a large part in the Second World War.
During the War of 1996, the RAF succeeded in bringing down a City Destroyer over Belfast. The RAF stationed in the Middle East were nearly destroyed by alien forces during the first day of the invasion. A few surviving RAF pilots participated in successfully bringing down a City Destroyer from destroying the holy city of Mecca.
