It amazes me how long the Queen at age 92 can stay on her feet.

I especially liked the fly over by the Panavia Tornado's and the Red Arrows

It is sad that we know that at her age ... there cannot be long left. She's seen so many other Heads of State around the world ... survived the Tony Blairs of the Govt trying to get a Republic ... an awesome woman who still commands respect and look at the crowds filling the Mall ...

Every event that has her on the Balcony - the streets are jammed with people. If anything brings the Brit people out together - its Queen Liz.

Tornado's ... it may be at end of its intended life span - but it still packs a punch and delivers. Its delivery of Brimstone precision missile having devastating effect in Syria ..

Many will be sorry to see Tonka's leave front line ... remains to be seen if the F35 can really replace it. The Tonka was superlative at low level stuff .. only matched really by the Jaguar ... but of course Low Level doesn't have the same priority now that the Iron Curtain has fallen.

Years ago - RNAS Lee on Solent (UK) hosted an Air Show ... USA sent a large carrier over that couldn't enter Portsmouth - it anchored out in the Solent. It carried a specially adapted F15 ... I have no idea why ... but anyway - this F15 was included in the show and myself, my first Wife and friends were on our balcony watching as the Airfield was reasonably close and my balcony gave excellent view.
This F15 was doing its passes and odd bits .. when a Tornado flashed in .. looped round the 15 and flashed off ... the 15 finished its 'routine' when the Tornado re-appeared and formed up with the 15 to fly out ... Tornado returning to do its routine.

Of course the best bit of that show was the BoB flypast ... Lancaster and her two pals Spit and Hurri ....
