Thursday 2nd June saw a 70 aircraft flypast over London to mark the beginning of Her Majesty the Queens Platinum Jubilee weekend.

Whilst all eyes were on London, our man Ryan Lim was at RAF Coningsby where many of the aircraft that took part departed from including the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the Typhoons that made up the giant 70 in the sky.
