Look to the skies tomorrow (Thur 18th June) as the Red Arrows are making a flypast over Central London at 5pm.
The flypast is to mark a state visit by President Macon of France on the occasion of 80 years since Charles De Gaulle’s historic speech to Occupied France, and very unusually, the Red Arrows will be joined by their French counterparts, the Patrouille de France.
So it’s a double-whammy of planes and smokes.
The flypast is also coming in from an unusual direction this time – coming in from the south-west via Weybridge and Richmond then over Whitehall at 5pm before heading out towards Essex.
The official air traffic alert is below – remember to add an hour to the times which are shown in GMT, not British Summer Time.

Naturally, lock-down advice, don’t travel to see them, but their famous smokes will be visible from most of London if you can get a view of the skyline.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.Thank you
