Good to see that the Reds came up with 9 aircraft, bearing in mind recent events.....

On a slightly drifting note, during one of the “fill in” bits on TV with Ms Wark, Sir Stu Peach referred to HM as Commander in Chief of the armed forces. Is that right? Is that new? Is that wrong? I have only ever heard her described as “head” which is subtly different.

Well it’s not airframes they are short of, although another birdstrike just after the event in the Midlands.

Glad to see Monty hasn't lost it; references nailed even though he’s on a ground tour!

If you look at the two Voyagers' tracks on FR24, from Colchester onwards the inbound track was 236°T to match the orientation of the Mall, so I don't see any evidence of a 3° divergence.
I've noticed that, at a couple of TTC flypasts that I've attended previously. There is a very obvious explantion of why this is deliberate, which I'm not going to describe here.

I've heard that same explanation given previously.

Arrows airbrake use: isn't it to push up the RPM to improve throttle response?
Higher thrust = more smoke in the Red's case.

Airbrake out

I’m sure I recall someone telling me that the disturbed airflow behind the airbrake also helps to make the smoke trail bloom more. Not sure if that’s a genuine reason or not but it seems feasible to me.

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.
The commentator's job is to comment on what viewers are seeing adding context and information.

Anyone can read a script out of sync with the video. What's actually required for the job is someone who watches the broadcast stream and knows their stuff. That someone was not Huw Edwards.

He appears to be paid a sight more, though; we wonder why ...

Nooooooooo.

It would have been more because he would have been deriving someone who knew how to do it of paid work!!

(And then someone else would have complained about you saying "for free" instead of "free" or "for nothing"! )

Canadian Sabres and Australian Vampires were part of the fly past for the 1953 RAF Coronation Review. The static display also included Australian Meteors and a New Zealand Bristol Freighter,

A list of participants is here: https://www.hampshireairfields.co.uk/nos10.html

I think the typographical term for what you're seeing there is a "serif".

Nice picture! Makes me feel really ancient, having worked on at least four of the types depicted - but wasn't in the RAF at that time.
