The morning flypast is NOTAMed at 4 (plus spare) Typhoons as "Triplex" formation (regular 29 Sqn callsign) not 9. I guess the assumption of 9 is because of the diamond flown over Coningsby last friday which was supposedly unconnected with the Lord Mayor's flypast tomorrow morning. This flypast is not planned to take the overland route Southwold - Ipswich - London although the later 757/Typhoon formation is.

The 757 is NZ7572 and is flying out of Brize Norton, arrived yesterday.
Details for the flypasts are as follows:-
The morning fly-past by 4 (5) Typhoons from 29 Sqn
(TRIPLEX 1, 2, 3, 4 & SPARE) will hold at Southwold and then route down the
coast over the sea until they get to the Thames estuary and then turn west
The afternoon fly-past by 3 (4) Typhoons from 3 Sqn (KIWI
1, 2, 3 & SPARE) accompanying the RNZAF Boeing 757 (KIWI 4) will hold at
Southwold and then route 'overland' to London. This will be along
the route normally taken by the Queen's Birthday Fly-Pasts i.e. Copdock,
