I watched from a corner of a wheat field in East Anglia, with no one else in sight. The countryside looked beautiful, and whilst the FJ crews would have been 100% faocussed on station keeping, maybe the odd soul in a heavy would have looked out and have been reminded what a wonderful country they are tasked with defending. The sub-formations were spaced out by 2 minutes of so, so possibly not as overwhelming as at the Mall, but the 70 was well done. Kept on thinking what a great effort by the techies, particularly to get so many Hawks into the air.....

Was with the hoardes in St James Park and can attest it looked absolutely brilliant from there, with the "70" superb.

Interested that a Rivet Joint could be spared, considering how busy they must be at the moment. And 2 Voyagers, come to think of it.

I figured they'd start to disperse around Putney Bridge - I was wrong as they fanned out a mile or two short of us, but the view of the things we don't normally see at low level in Sarf Lunnun was good enough, bracketed as we were by the A400/C-17 just to the east and the P-8 and RC-135 just to the west! Wish the BBMF had been more within earshot though... All in all great stuff! Tick VG.

Of the three Rivet Joints we have, I believe one is currently in the USA undergoing a refit/deep maintenance and has been for some time. Don't believe it is due back anytime soon, so all the more remarkable one was spared for the flypast.

We are busy, more than we’ve ever been, but it’s an honour to be a part of this auspicious occasion. Back to work as usual after this.

Thank you to the engineers who made this happen

I would think they are not as bad as our public broadcaster the kept on trying to bring up scandal and seemed to think that going back to imperial measurements is weaponizing politics.

I know this is not aviation related.
What is the significance of an 82 gun salute??
Surely 70 or 96 would have been more appropriate?

I watched the RAF fly past here on Sky News, first came the rotary types - but where were the Chinooks? Agreed the flip-floppng of the director from one formation to another didn't help but I would have thought the Chinooks desereved attention. Otherwise a great effort - by the RAF, not Sky News.

Those banging on about Hew Edwards might remember the very knowledgeable contributions of some years ago by Julian Tutt. Tutt was a former RAF Regt officer who was once the Queen's Colour Bearer for a tour on QCS.

I understand that he might have had some issues with the BBC and don't know where he is now (somebody said local radio in Bath).

Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, who is very experienced in Royal issues, was a good choice o comment on the Trooping.

Pity there were no tanks in the parade to rumble over the silly animal rights protesters but the Met was swiftly on the case!

I thought Huw and the were visuals out of synch? He may have been looking at what he correctly identified but the director was doing other things.

I noticed (looking at the ADSB feed) that when the fast jets came over the coast one of them turned back / away... I can't fathom why... none seemed to be missing, but then why would an extra one have been sent!

Seriously, chaps - HE was sitting in a windowless room, with a list of aircraft provided by the RAF and filtered by a producer, with monitors showing five or six different camera angles, while a director made independent decisions on which camera view to broadcast, and echelons of aircraft came overhead at 200 knots. He possibly had no idea what the broadcast output was showing at that moment. And he's a TV personality, not ex-aircrew or a spotter. He'd been live for over two hours, on what may well be the biggest show of the year, with a guest in the studio to engage with.

It's probably not as tough as flying an inverted Buccaneer at 20 ft around the Glens, as you gents have all done, but it's not easy; and using this error to slag off the BBC tells more about your own political agenda than it does about HE's ability.

That was where the whip left us in 2005 when I flew in the QBF. His parting call was “weather looks terrible between here and London- Good luck”. we made it though
