The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Flypast route

Heading into London from the Wash, the pilots flew over the North Sea, passing Southwold on to Southend, Swaffham, Thetford and Colchester. They flew directly over the Barbican, in the City of London, before heading a moment later down the Mall and over Buckingham Palace. The dispersal took place to the South and West of London taking in parts of Kent, Surrey, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.
