Trooping of the Colour and Queen’s Birthday Flypast – The Mall, London – 11 June 2016

The centuries old tradition saw the Colour trooped by No.7 Company Coldstream Guards , with the Royal Family, troops  and military bands passing down The Mall from Buckingham Palace to the ceremony on Horse Guards Parade. Upon their return the Royal Family viewed the Queen’s Birthday Flypast from the balcony of the Palace. The Flypast included current aircraft of the RAF, plus a Spitfire and Hurricane from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and was concluded by the Red Arrows – to great cheers from the massed public. The Queen’s ninetieth birthday unsurprisingly attracted a larger than usual attendance, and for once they enjoyed fair- though not ideal – weather which remained dry and reasonably bright. A number of the flypasts of previous years have been affected by low cloud.
