Courtesy of sat tv ( not in UK ) watched it , very well done in my opinion ( except standard party took a time to get in step ...). Wonder what the " old boys " were thinking, lots of dust in my kennel tonight...........Well done BBC for a change.

As I said in the Mil forum, that probably was the worst coverage of any event that I've ever seen from the BBC, A presenter with a total lack of interviewing skills, and thinks that the designator GR stands for fighter, interviews done during a fly past, A camera dollied intrusively and disrespectfully between the guests and the colours and for most of the Lancs fly past we just watched the four people on the flight deck. I wont go on.

From the RAF side brilliant.
