Military Flypasts over London in 2012

Details of military aircraft fly pasts over London during 2012 are starting to emerge, and I have the basic details from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight below.

Rather a lot of tbas in there at the moment, but the page will be updated closer to the dates when times are confirmed, and naturally added to the events calendar. I shall endeavour to get flight paths were possible, but sometimes that just proves frustratingly difficult.

No sign of the Red Arrows agenda yet – will add to the table if they are flying over London. I presume something will be arranged for the Olympics.

FYI – Hendon in the flypasts is almost always the RAF Museum, which is worth a visit if you haven’t been before.

In addition to the fighter planes, there is usually a chance to get up close and personal with a Chinook helicopter at the annual open evening at the HAC near Old Street.

You can also ask for your own flypast, if you are a suitably worthy sort of organisation – details here.
