This story is over

Lincolnshire’s RAF Red Arrows will close the show on a spectacular flypast to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday.

The Red Arrows will be the final element in the formation flying over Buckingham Palace from 1pm on Saturday, June 11.

Tornados, Typhoons, Hurricanes and Spitfires will be among the aircraft on display, with many flying down from Lincolnshire airbases such as RAF Waddington, Cranwell and Scampton.

The flypast will consist of eight “elements” of between two and nine aircraft, made up of 15 types of aircraft, from Second World War jets to the Red Arrows.

Each element will pass over Buckingham Palace 30 seconds apart from one another.

Below is the full running order for the display.
