Number 2 Mechanical Transport Squadron at RAF Wittering and Ryder have joined forces to celebrate the RAF’s 100th anniversary by wrapping two trucks in a commemorative livery (pictured). 
2MT, as the Squadron is known, is the Royal Air Force’s road-going heavy lift capability. 2MT was originally founded during the Battle of Britain to transport vital spares between RAF Stations. Today, the Squadron provides specialist military drivers and equipment to support exercises and operations.   
The wrapping of the Iveco Stralis units took two days and was sponsored by Ryder. 
David Hunt, MD, Ryder Europe, said: "Ryder is proud to have worked with the MoD for more than 20 years, providing white fleet vehicles for the RAF’s transportation needs.

"In this special RAF 100th anniversary year, we are delighted to be supporting the celebrations with two specially liveried Iveco Stralis RAF100 trucks."

The trucks are being used at special events across the country to celebrate RAF100 and the work of the Royal Air Force today.
