Battle Of Britain Flypast at Westminster Abbey

Just a pity the BBC seem compelled to talk over these flypasts. It would be so much better if they did their talking before or after, so you can hear those Merlin engines. ::)

I absolutely despise when they natter on over the sound of the engines. I was at the Queens Birthday Flypast and RAF 100 flypast IN 2018 (103 aircraft over Buckingham Palace :D) and it was amazing. I watched it on tv when I got home and they spent the entire time rambling on.

Just be thankful we don't have CNN here covering them. I watched their big flypast over Washington last month and as well as talking the whole time, got nearly every aircraft wrong.

Here is a B29... nope, B17
We do not know what this next aircraft is... It's another B17, just like the one you just called a B29
Here are P51 Mustangs - Actually correct
Here are some F4 Phantoms and F86 Sabres... Nope, still the P51s
