Military Flypasts over London (and surrounds)

Collating details as they are published of the various military aircraft flypasts over London and local area, as I do – and it is about as ready as it is likely to get.

Apart from the big flypast in June for the Queen’s Birthday, there seems to be a decent flypast over St Paul’s Cathedral and Whitehall in September.

Apart from that,a couple over the RAF Museum in North London (Hendon) and Bletchley Park seems to do quite well this year. Most of the flypasts are by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, with some by the Red Arrows. The Typhoon (Eurofighter) flypast details haven’t been released yet.

I’ll update the details below as and when I get fresh information.

The from/to columns may offer a hint of the route being flown along if you can’t get to the key location. Closer to the date, I can sometimes get flight plans for some of the routes.

    I assume that you are aware that you can get details of flypasts over London by looking at the NOTAMS on the AIS web-site, or the US DoD ‘JCS’ site. Usually gives dates and times.

    Also, don’t forget the flypast at the start of the Lod Mayor’s Show in London, 2nd Sunday in November, at 11am.
