1pm over London.
Where are you going to be?
I'm in the city today so will pop out for a vape if I remember.
People near Boris Johnson's house in Angel advised to take cover at 1250 and await the all clear
Blimey, up to 100 planes, sounds very impressive.
Great for people in Suffolk, Essex & London, but sadly not for us in Sussex.
tell you what, as a gesture of Londoners kindness you have them in Sussex, we'll suffer in silence.
Oooh I'll be well placed to watch if I remember to step out in time. One of my patients is an RAF parachute vet, I'll ask him if he wants to see it
Are all these old planes airworthy. Worried about one crashing over Central London.
It will be going pretty much over my house (it seems to be following the a12) but I'm at bloody work today. Wife and son will be in the garden watching though.
Yes, and Dorset has been overlooked again
Planey flying twats
No. I am not and I am most displeased.
toblerone3 they are probably better looked after and more stringently checked than most passenger planes so should be fine.
Yeah... they really aren't but it'll still probably be fine.
Sirens wailing in n1
well yeah. Londoners just have to trust as well as put our fingers in our ears.
It's just that after the helicopter crash in Vauxhall and the tourist attraction plane that hit a road near Brighton, the idea of being used as a backdrop for an ancient aircraft photoshoot doesn't really appeal. Sorry.
There's plenty of space in Surrey or Kent, and they have some claim for celebrating the Battle of Britain, while no older Londoner I've ever spoken to has mentioned the glamour of dogfights high in the sky, just the terror of being in the Blitz.
The maintenance records of the aircraft will be under scrutiny after one falls on Boris Johnson's house. But the damage will be done.
6 fucking humongous helicopters just flew over my house making one hell of a racket
I couldn't see it/them but everything rattled
Shoddy photo as it took me surprise as I walked the dog but yes a shit load of chinooks in formation over West Norwood
Has Harry got another note from his gran? Seriously should have had a shave
I’m in Hyde Park now. Huge security 4 plod helicopters up and loads of road closures. The planes were great but thev high point so far was watch a typically pushy cyclist, who the rules obviously don’t apply to, trying to cycle round a barrier with a copper controlling traffic in front of it.
He gave her such an almighty bollocking that she started crying!
Glad you are having such a good day, spy.
Saw it. It was fabulous. I am in utter awe of the pilots’ skills.
oh Christ, don't tell them that for fucks sake...
the stars of the show were of course the Mighty Wokkas, though i liked the F-35's, they did look rather tasty. the overall highlight for those of us burdened with more glorious purpose however was the RAF Parade Commander, who looked like she'd ironed her uniform with a wooden pallet. my crustacian colleague is currently squirming in embarrassment, which is the natural and rightful condition for any Crab with even an atom of self-awareness.
the barrier monkeys got an ironic cheer for not shooting the Queen.
Sniff. Makes you proud to be Dutch.
Fucking missed it heard it but couldn't go outside.
I quite enjoyed that, got a really good view from the city
Anyone still West End-ish fancy a beer?
