This style of Busby was worn with the a new style of musician's which was introduced in 1976 for the Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.

The RAF MOD website quotes: "On 29 April 2011 at the Wedding of HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton, RAF Music Services retired the Busby after thirty-five years in favour of a Ceremonial Cap. The change was made as it was felt the Cap better reflected the public image of the RAF as a whole, the Busby being exclusive to the Bands."
