I took my daughter to see the flypast at Heathrow, which is just down the road from us, there;s a small hill and field between Poyle and Terminal 5 which is a great area for plane spotting. We brought a picnic blanket, some snacks, phone cameras and binoculars. We were there an hour before the Jubilee Flypast and watched many types of planes flying really low overhead on the final approach. The most amazing was the Airbus A380 which is enormous and filled the sky above.

Ten minutes before the flypast, all commercial flights stopped to allow sufficient airspace for the flypast which then continued across the UK, staying in formation at each waypoint. I have to admire the professionalism and skill of the RAF pilots who are amongst the best in the world.

We didn't see the Lancaster or other WW2 planes, but we did see the Typhoons doing the 70 formation, and also the Red Arrows, there were also some F35's in formation.

I was great to see and made our day especially with such fine weather.

Well, you SHOULD be proud of the old gal, and the RAF.

Liz was born the same year as my Mom, and they were both ambulance drivers in WWII, and both proud to be able to serve. My Mom is gone now, but I think of her and that generation whenever I see your Queen out and about. She looks genuinely happy to see those planes overhead in her honor ....

Lovely ceremony and pageantry.
It's missing something without the Sex Pistols on the barge though. laughing
