Last year, as part of the Queen's jubilee celebrations, another fly-past was seen over Suffolk. On that occasion 27 aircraft including a series of Red Arrows flew over Ipswich, again heading for Buckingham Palace. The fly-past went over the north west of the town and took in places including Castle Hill, Whitton and Sproughton.

The Copdock area proved to be a perfect vantage point with cars filling the laybys of the A12 and A14 to catch a glimpse of the planes. Many of the spectators climbed the banks at the side of the road to get the best view possible.
The Red Arrows then released lines of red, white and blue smoke as they passed over London's jubilee celebrations.
