Why can't Her Majesty use a normal stainless steel jubilee instead? It would save a few quid and she could use the the platinum for a nice new brooch.

There's been a couple more flyovers at one of the shows/rallies I was recently at, always brilliant to see.

I thought that flypast in the "70" formation was a wonderful touch.
I'm not sure what the planes were, but I'm sure Peter will know.

Hi Andrew. The '70' aircraft were Typhoons.

Saw some of the helicopter element heading out, they passed over us on the M40 earlier.

My mate in the Black Country had a Lanc fly over his house this afternoon (Thurs), so low he could see the letters on the side apparently. Lucky devil.
