Can anyone suggest a location in inner east London, easily accessible by car, where it is easy to see and film the flypast on 10 July? I have to travel to Essex that day and will drop down to a suitable spot, preferably to the south of the flightpath so the sun will be behind me. I recall that in the past some formations depart Coningsby then make for Southwold but can't remember the usual route from there: should have kept the notams! On the official sites I can't even find a note of the timing. Any advice much appreciated.
They normally fly an almost straight line from Southwold to the Mall. I usually reckon 1250 hrs (local) over Ipswich for 1300 hrs over the Palace. In years gone by it was always a good trip to Southwold to watch the Wednesday practice - used to take 6 or 7 laps of a race-track pattern over a period of about an hour for all the formations to join up.
