Today, as part of the Cadet150 celebrations, there was a cadet march along The Mall at lunchtime, finished off with a flypast by the famous Red Arrows.

Some lucky cadets also got to fly as passengers in the Red Arrows jets as well.

Some photos of the flypast as seen from my flat – click on photos for larger versions.

This is roughly what it would have looked like from The Mall.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    The Red Arrows must be training out of RAF Wittering, or one of our other local bases, recently they have flow over our allotment a couple of times (Corby). Last night there was one group in a V, followed by a small formation + one rolling.
