The RAF was formed on April 1, 1918 and has taken a significant role in British military history since then, playing a large part in World War II and in conflicts such as the recent war in Iraq.
RAF squadrons are somewhat analogous to the regiments of the British army, in that they have histories and traditions going back to their formation, regardless of where they are currently based, which aircraft they are operating, etc. They can be awarded standards and battle honours for meritorious service.
Aircraft in development, or soon to be deployed, include the Airbus A400M, of which 25 are to be used to replace the remaining Hercules C-130Ks.

The civilian operating companies are responsible for the up-keep of the aerodrome, which may sometimes be used by an RAF or Army detachment whilst on exercise.

 The Ultimate List of aircraft - American History Information Guide and Reference
This list of aircraft is sorted alphabetically, beginning with the name of the manufacturer (or, in certain cases, designer).
It is an inclusive list rather than an exclusive one, meaning that where an aircraft is known under multiple names, designations, or manufacturers, each of these is listed.
This list does not generally include variants or subtypes of the aircraft themselves (although there is considerable difference among various manufacturers and designation systems as to what constitutes a new aircraft as opposed to a variant of an existing type).

The timeline pages tracing the development of the RAF from its beginnings to the present day aren't bad, and the aircraft histories are certainly worthwhile.
This website is nicely laid out, with sections on different types of fighters, bombers, transports, trainers, helicopters and special purpose aircraft, however there isn't much information on the pages dedicated to the different models of aircraft, only a few photos and basic technical information with no historical data.

The RAF were close to defeat but Adolf Hitler then changed his tactics and ordered the Luftwaffe to switch its attack from British airfields, factories and docks to civilian targets.
Although RAF pilots were able to bring down a large number of German planes, critics claimed that they were not always available during emergencies and prime targets became more vulnerable to bombing attacks.
The great Dunkirk evacuation started on 26th May. The RAF was extremely active throughout the famous withdrawal but such is the nature of aerial combat that the skirmishes seldom occurred in sight of the actual evacuation beaches.

It's a large museum and there's a huge list of the aircraft that they've got, unfortunately it's arranged so that each letter of the alphabet has a separate page, making it slow and painful to move through the list.

Ultimately, many of the museum's aircraft will be displayed at the Udvar-Hazy Center, due to open in December 2003 at Dulles Airport outside Washington DC.
