A Grand Day Out

On Saturday I spent the day in London, meeting up with friends in order to go to the National Theatre to see 'The Threepenny Opera'

We met up in time to have lunch (Pies!) near the river, then, as we walked back to the theatre, we found that the RAF had kindly put on a fly-past to celebrate our meeting.

(I suppose it is just possible that they may also have been marking the Queen's 90th Brthday and Trooping of the Colour) 

Spitfire and Hurricane - Battle of Britain Flight
There were initially a group of 4 helicopters, followed by a Hurricane and a Spitfire from the Battle of Britain Flight

There were then various other planes,  from the Hercules, and other big transport planes, to more modern jet planes, including Tornados and Typhoons.

The finale was provided by the Red Arrows, who came in over the Thames in their distinctive 'V' formation.

I hope the Queen enjoyed seeing them. We did!

The Red Arrows
And it was a fun addition to the day.
