It would be interesting to see a table comparing the numbers of aircraft, numbers of squadrons, numbers of airfields and number of personnel serving in the regular RAF at the time of the Queen's coronation, Silver Jubilee, Golden Jubilee and Diamond Jubilee....

The 1953 Coronation Review at Odiham included a flypast by 641 aircraft and a static display of a further 318. Perhaps the Diamond Jubilee flypast might run to the BBMF, Reds and 4 TypHoons? But that's probably about all...
