RAF 100 Flypast - 10 Jul

Hopefully the link below works. If you are in London on 10 July, give them your support.

I plan to find somewhere suitable with a nice nearby pub - or one with a garden!

'Visitors to London should come down early to see the London leg of the RAF100 Aircraft Tour'

The implication is that the gorilla will be visiting other venues. Is the route published anywhere?

Bet there won't be 100 sharp and pointy aircraft - the RAF hasn't got that many left!

Post #5. Well done. I knew it wouldn’t take long before someone brought this thread down.

Is is it not possible to have just one thread where we celebrate what’s good without bemoaning jet numbers and (inevitably) harking back to the Royal reviews of the 1950’s?!

Thanks Nutloose but, as far as I can see on the link, there is no mention of any other places that the 100 a/c flypast might be overflying. The tour mentioned is confined to the tour of static exhibits.

So if you don’t live in London you have to live in the West of the Country to see any of the venues!!!
Why is that?

Cosford will have a big static line up, but I don't think a Flypast, I know they have been collecting aircraft for it, Black Mike the Phantom, they have borrowed a Lightning, there will be a Bucc and Hawk etc, I have a photoshoot day booked before the show

Does anyone know if veterans are allowed in the parade. If, how do we apply. There seems to be nothing on the website about it and I can't seem to make contact with the organisers. Grateful for any gen.

Only 50 aircraft at RIAT according to RAF Facebook. Will they fly past twice?

I always thought it would have been a good idea (although a nightmare to organise) to invite countries who fought alongside us in WW2, Polish, Free French, Czech, Dutch, Norweigan, Belgian Squadrons for a start, plus of course the Eagle Sqns and the RAAF and RNZAF.

Would have made up the numbers nicely although I expect getting clearance for F16's over London would kibosh it.

We did a flypast like that at RIAT 2010 for the BoB 70th.

It was fun.
