RAF flypast Jubilee

A full formation of military aircraft will make a flypast over London to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen on 2 June 2022.

Mauve AIC 33/2022 has been issued detailing airspace restrictions in place for the flypast, which will coincide with the Royal Family’s balcony appearance.

The AIC says the flypast will start in the vicinity of The Wash, The North Sea and Southwold, Suffolk and Southend. It will then route from the hold via Swaffham and Thetford and Colchester towards London to overfly Buckingham Palace.

The dispersal will occur to the south and west of the London Control Zone over Kent, Surrey, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.

Two charts are in the AIC: what areas are active and when on 2 June
