Runnymede flypast, that Typhoon along with a Spitfire in formation following the Red Arrows, coming across meadow at right angles. (five minutes exactly later, got the smell of the smoke/kerosene at ground level)

King John would have been impressed.
I see the Reds also buzzed Heathrow earlier. Nice video online from the tower.

That was the direction they dropped into the pass; a bit disappointing as it was a straight disection of the area, but interesting to see the pause in landings passing over Windsor.

This is interesting, Heathrow pause!

Not sure what I just saw pass over my house...appeared to be (and sounded like) a Blue Spit in close formation with a White private jet that had upturned Wingtips...heading NE from Fareham
