    RAF 100 Flypast Route

    RAF 100 Flypast Route 10th Jul 18 at 6:02 AM
    The flypast will take place today, passing over The Mall and Buckingham Palace at 1pm.

    There will also be a parade of more than 1,000 RAF members.

    The flypast will begin to form over Suffolk, near to Ipswich, at around 12.45pm, travelling towards Colchester and Chelmsford.

    It will then continue in a south-west direction towards Leyton, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Hackney, Bethnal Green, Shoreditch and City of London.

    The spectacle is then set to plot a course over Buckingham Palace and The Mall, before flying over Heathrow, Windsor and Maidenhead.

    Once the formation has cleared central London it will split into three groups, heading towards Runnymede, Heathrow and Hendon.

    They will then start to disperse and head back to their bases.

    RAF Centenary - 10th July Celebrations

    The RAF released a free app on Friday, making it easier to watch the RAF100 formation over Buckingham Palace on July 10 through their phones and tablets.

    The app -- called RAF100 AR Flypast -- is on the UK Google Play and iOS Stores and features 35 types of aircraft spanning the RAF's 100-year history. The list includes icons such as the Spitfire and runs to the state of the art F35 Lightning.

    Didn't know a thing about it.
    Miles away from me.

    If somebody can send them a txt to fly over my house about 100+ miles away and then let me know what time... I'll step outside for 2 minutes to see them.

    Not a big fan of planes... don't know one from the other.

    Can someone enlighten me here please? A few years ago, an aircraft (I want to say Lancaster, but not sure) carried out it's final flight, I happened to walk into the garden just as it was flying over. I had no idea I was on the flightpath, but my word, what a magnificent beast it was. Does anyone know what aircraft it could be?

    I've got my DSLR ready with a long lens, just in case some of them venture a bit further south from Runnymede! I got caught out completely a couple of weeks ago when the Lanc flew fairly low right over the house. I heard it coming, but couldn't even grab my smartphone in time. I still have no idea where it was heading to/from, but what a lost opportunity.

    Well, contrary to what I thought, I heard a loud rumble & shot down the stairs as fast as my little legs could carry me to see a lot of helicopters! As it is 13:10, assume it was them branching of from formation?

    Happy bunny though to see that
