Temporary structure specialists Neptunus helped the Royal Air Force celebrate its historic 100thanniversary this past weekend, 24 July.

They created a special VIP facility on London’s Horse Guards Parade, incorporating a static display of aircraft.

Tens of thousand of people packed The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace to view 100 planes making a spectacular flyover, which was viewed by The Queen and senior members of The Royal Family.

Also in attendance were the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, Princess Anne and the Duke of York.

22 Typhoon jets spelled out ‘100’ as they flew in formation over London. It was the first time the RAF’s F-35 Lightning stealth fighters had been seen over London.

During the day, 5,000 VIPs were entertained in a massive temporary cafeteria erected by Neptunus on Horse Guards Parade. It consisted of 3,500sqm of temporary structures, put together in just seven days.

April Trasler, managing director of Neptunus, said: “It was a tremendous honour for Neptunus to be asked to supply facilities to such a high-profile, historic and prestigious occasion.”

Neptunus was founded 80 years ago, and is a family-run business with its head office in the Netherlands. It also has divisions in the UK, Belgium, Germany, France, Poland and Austria.
