Look to the skies on Sunday lunchtime, as a Lancaster Bomber will be flying over London. It’s visiting to make a flypast over the Bomber Command memorial in Green Park, which was unveiled a decade ago, but will also fly over the RAF Museum in Colindale, North London first.

The flypast over the RAF Museum will be around 11:55am, and should fly over the Bomber Command memorial at the Hyde Park corner end of Green Park at noon.

It’s not been confirmed yet what direction the plane will take after that to head out of London airspace.

So if you want to see, and most importantly, hear the roar of the flypast, then either the RAF Museum or Green Park are the places to be.

The plane is part of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.


Updated: Sunday 26th 9:10am to confirm the flypast has been cancelled.

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

    Sadly it was cancelled, yesterday apparently, due to winds. Annoying as I popped into the Museum to watch… ah well.

    Saw what I thought was a Flying Fortress flying out at approx. 4pm towards Duxford. Heard it earlier about 3pm as well. Maybe used instead ?
