With the few of us left on this forum I actually doubted we'd get that comment.

The Royal Air Force has seventy plus strike aircraft, with over one hundred other strike aircraft being "available", so little imagination needed to assess the chances of achieving the numbers - the organization is another matter. There are over one hundred and fifty Hawks, then with transport and helicopters that gives us the possibility of "one hundred", and don't forget the Red Arrows can put up at least twelve.

Difficult to set it up; those in Lincolnshire may be aware of various formation flights happening even now.

If we're lucky they'll do the same formation  on the Friday at RIAT.
Not holding my breath on that, though.

It is aimed to have one hundred aircraft in a flypast for a Royal Review over London on Tuesday the 10th July. the drawback with those sort of formations is the height and therefore sillouhettes of the aircraft. I shall already be ensconced in the area of RIAT so will miss that.
