As I'm sure most of the UK members here will be aware in about 2 hours the largest RAF flypast (40 odd aircraft) since the Battle of Britain 50th of 1990 will pass over East Anglia prior to flying over London. This will involve most of the current frontline types ('heavies' and fast jets), the Reds and the Memorial flight. While I realise its military rather than airliners would this rare event come under the 'special events' listed as a reason for priority screening?

Scrap the original question as it doesn't matter now! As for some reason they passed the usual spot in Ipswich well to the East, putting them right in the sun and unlike recent flypasts the formations were not formed at that point. No pictures even worth attempting to upload.
