In 2009 the Royal Navy celebrates 100 years of Naval Aviation.

It was 1909 when the Admiralty placed its first order for a Naval Airship. It was a radical shift in military thinking that was to lead to the formation of the Royal Naval Air Service, later renamed the Fleet Air Arm, and which marked the beginnings of the formidable versatility and capability of Naval Air Power.

This issue of six stamps, created by renowned aviation artist Keith Woodcock, celebrates the development of the Service with images which span the years from airships to jet fighters.

Date of issue: 15th January 2009
