The Chief of the Air Staff from 1940-1946 was Charles Portal. Though he was the RAF supremo at the time, he is probably less well known than some of the commander of various parts of the RAF such as Hugh Dowding (Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain) and Arthur Harris (Bomber Command from late February 1942 till the end of WW2).

I hope you meant the RAF. There is no RIF. The Royal Air Force exists today. During World War 2 they were known as the RAAF, Royal Army Air Force.AnswerThe original answer is incorrect, as there has never been a 'Royal Army Air Force'. The letters, 'RAAF', represents the Royal Australian Air Force!The Royal Air Force was formed in 1918, by amalgamating the Royal Flying Corps (essentially part of the British Army), and the Royal Naval Air Service (part of the Royal Navy). This is one of the reasons that the RAF rank insignia is based on that of the Royal Navy. The Royal Navy still retains an independent air wing, called the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS). And, yes, the RAF does exist today.

I'm presuming that you're asking after the British/English air force - they were called the RAF (Royal Air Force) and primarily flew Spitfires and Hurricanes.

They were extremely effective, but at a huge cost in aircrew lives.
