Thousands of votes were cast but the Tornado F3 nudged ahead of the Phantom and the Hunter, winning with a total of 1,437 votes. The Phantom came a very close second with just 37 votes less and the Hunter finished with 1,259. 5,900 people voted and the results have created a lot of interest and debate.RAF Greatest Following the success of this poll, the RAF Benevolent Fund is now asking people to cast their votes for the most iconic RAF figure of World War Two. At the moment Air Chief Marshal Dowding is in the lead with 27% of the vote, however Group Captain Bader, Marshal of the RAF Harris and Wing Commander Gibson are close behind. The question has led to some great discussion about what constitutes an iconic figure, and plenty of debate about the merits of the RAFBF’s proposed candidates. The poll will be open until the end of January and can be found at http://www.rafbf90.org.uk/. The results of the older votes can be found at http://www.rafbf90.org.uk/pollsarchive/. The polls are featured on ‘90 faces of the RAF Benevolent Fund’, the charity’s special 90th anniversary microsite, which includes 90 different stories about the RAFBF’s work using a variety of anecdotes in text, audio and video format. The site features articles about the people the charity helps, the people who fundraise for them and the ways the RAF Benevolent Fund currently supports today’s highly-stretched RAF.
