25/06/19, RAF Odiham, Hampshire Last night a crowd of 1,000 members of the RAF Family joined together to create a giant ‘Human Radar’ in a spectacular lightshow.
The event took place at the start of Armed Forces Week to celebrate the launch of the RAF Benevolent Fund’s Join the Search. Change a Life campaign encouraging the public to get thousands of RAF veterans and their families ‘back on the radar’ and, if they need it, accessing support that is rightfully theirs.
The lightshow was created using Xylobands LED wristbands which lit up the crowd turning it into a pulsing, sweeping radar, before changing colour and transforming into the familiar RAF roundel, and finally the RAF Benevolent Fund logo. Beneficiaries whom the Fund has helped were in the heart of the circle including former Sergeant Bob Greig, 59, who joined the RAF in 1979 and served for six years as a parachute jumpin
