    Apparently being the RAF's 90th birthday they are going all out on this one.

    Rumour has it the're going to be the BBMF lancaster, 2 x hurricanes, 2 x spitfires plus possible the dakota.
    The on the jets they've got C-130 + 2 Kingairs, 9xTyphoons, VC-10 + 2 Tornado F3 + E3 Sentry, 11 Tornado F-3, C-17 + 2 F-3, Nimrod + 2 F-3, Tristar + 2 S125, 16 Tornado GR-4

    Should be quite a show.

    Hmmm, anyone got any flightplan in more detail over London, specifically Buckingham Palace? Anyone know the direction at which they will be flying over the Palace?

    They'll be flying west up The Mall from Trafalgar Square then after the palace, seems they will be turning right over Hyde Park.

    I'm gonna see if there are any sweet spots in Green Park that give a decent view without too many tree's

    Yeah I was hoping they would fly up The Mall, I have a perfect shot in mind for that :D

    Time to get the old 17-40 out once again for this flyover.

    I'm also taking a laptop with me with 3G mobile broadband so that I can send my best shots off to all the London newspapers and BBC London Tonight.

    And you know the European trash normally get their own way, total jealousy

    I went, was pretty cool. Soooo busy around there, millions of tourists. I don't think I heard anyone speak english all day :D

    Didn't get any great shots like the last flyover sadly, the Red Arrows didn't make an appearance which was really annoying, I could have got a great one if they had...with their smoke and all. I was in the perfect position for it aswel :(

    I think the 'Reds' are currently in Canada or the USA. Promoting the BAE Hawk.

    Been reading about the controversy over the Nimrod flying, apparently it was deemed unairworthy. Oh well looking forward to seeing peoples shots.

    They normally stack right on top of us while the groups form but they went straight across today - about 1/2 mile away so all I got was some distant planes in low cloud :LOL:

    Put a few of my shots up on Flickr:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Got a load more (took almost 200) but overall wasn't really happy with my shots today. Could have got a show-stopper if the Red Arrows had taken part, their smoke trails all the way up The Mall would have been a brilliant photo from where I was standing.

    Also noticed today how much I need a 2nd body. After the first few shots I was seriously regretting using my 17-40 over my 70-200. The last flyover the 17-40 worked so well, was so proud of that London Eye photo, but for this one I wish I had used my 70-200. I was expecting the Red Arrows and had they taken part, the 17-40 would have probably worked better :(

    Hi, I am a Sea Cadet and took part in the flypast today. There were 150 cadets on board the Tristar followed by various jets such as the Red Arrows. We flew over Norfolk and then down to London and over the city then the final approach was the flypast over the palace before heading back to base. Was an amazing experience and will upload videos/photos ASAP.

    The Red Arrows are currently in base Brize Norton. I know this because I got to fly in the RAF Tristar today and they were behind us.
