Hello,

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?

49 according to the 'Plane Geek'. lovely sunny day down there. bit windy by the looks of the on board lancaster camera though. over flying a bit high for my liking but nevermind.

in order of appearance.

BBMF, Lancaster (looks like it has such a cramped cockpit?) with a spitfire and hurricane either side

4 Phoons

a lovely Globemaster

even nicer Tristar with a Typhoon and Jag either side.

Nimrod with 2 GR4s either side.

Sentry with 2 F3s either side.

VC10 with 2 Jags either side.

9 GR4s from Marham in Diamond formation.

last but not least the Reds with a Canberra in the middle. must be said a Canberra is hardly a replacement for where Concorde should have been

atleast the BBC managed to film it this time.

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.
