Chinooks, Red Arrows and the entire military contingent (4,000+) march over Waterloo Bridge at 1500 after the Coronation. Traditionaly trains have always been used to bring the troops to and from London for the Coronation. This is them returning to Waterloo Train Station to return to barracks. @tempusmurphy
I guess the Chinnoks were not part of the flypast but were carrying part of the SAS anti-terrorist response team.
I saw the helos … about 2.15 flying over waltham abbey … few Wildcats, Merlins, Apachie’s. 3 police helicopters at the front and 2 Chinhooks at the rear… unfortunately was driving when they went over so couldn’t get the camera out
OK,… a bit of leg pulling here but this was said on national tv…it was safety due to bad visibility forming up the fly past,… but did anybody hear the BBC pundit say “Here come the Red Arrows, they’re safe to fly because they’re professionally trained pilots”,…LOL?
We used to get lots of action from the BBMF for many years, but for some reason they stopped flying over here. Haven’t seen any from my house for a few years now. We do see lots of the Typhoons and F-15s as well as the Ospreys and Chinooks, but it isn’t the same.
