Trooping of the Colour and Queen’s Birthday Flypast, The Mall, London – 13 June 2015

The centuries old tradition saw the Colour trooped by 1st Battalion Welsh Guards, with the Royal Family and military bands passing down The Mall from Buckingham Palace to Horse Guards Parade and back. Upon their return the Royal Family viewed the Queen’s Birthday Flypast from the balcony of the Palace. The Flypast was planned to include current aircraft of the RAF, plus the Dakota, Spitfires and Hurricanes from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, and to be concluded by the Red Arrows. Sadly the drizzle and low cloud on the day precluded all but the latter.
