Wandered down towards Greenwich at lunchtime to watch the flyover of 20 helicopters over HMS Illustrious as part of the week’s celebrations.
I actually stayed on the north side by Island Gardens as I hoped to get shots of helicopters and the old naval college in the background. Alas, the helicopters were, as expected, too high – but also unexpectedly further north than I expected, so the photos didn’t happen.
I also later learned that the formation carried on along the river right up to central London, which means I would have got much better photos from the comfort of my flat! Oh well, you live and learn
A collection of photos will be updated throughout the weekend.
