Parts of Kent will be treated to a view of the Queen's Jubilee flypast next month.

The military show will see a large formation of fighter jets and other military aircraft passing over Buckingham Palace on Thursday, June 2 - and above the north west of our county between 12.50pm and 1.30pm.

A map of the flypast route shows areas around Dartford, Swanley and Sevenoaks should offer good views.

The flypast will start between 11.45 and 1pm in the vicinity of The Wash, The North Sea and Southwold, Suffolk and Southend, then pass Swaffham and Thetford and Colchester towards London to fly over Buckingham Palace.

The aircraft will then disperse south and west of London, flying over Kent, Surrey, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.

Rehearsals will be held over eastern England on May 24 if the weather allows, or on May 26 or 27 otherwise.

Details of what aircraft are due to join the flypast have yet to be released, but the Red Arrows and Typhoons took part in a similar display for the Queen's birthday in 2019.
