Default RAF 100 - Flypast

A great flypast - the Queen obviously enjoyed it - a big smile on her face. A good variety of aircraft.

At 1.20pm the Lancaster flew over Basingstoke's western perimeter, flying in a northerly direction, followed five minutes later by the C47 Dakota. Both were low and just cruising along over the Hampshire countryside - it was nice to see them just a few minutes after watching them on TV flying over London.

Truly breathtaking - we do seem to have a knack of doing this sort of thing well. Congratulations to all who organise, participate and serve. R-

Saw all the fast jets over Dorney near Eton. Fantastic.
