"One of the largest flypasts ever seen in Britain commemorates nine decades of the Royal Air Force in front of an audience including the Queen. Featuring displays including 90 aircraft that have defended the UK during that time, from World War One bi-planes to the jets and helicopters used in Iraq and Afghanistan today. Presented by Dan Snow and Kate Silverton from RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire"

I remember watching the fly-pasts on the 60th anniversary of D-Day. Most of the Airforces in Europe took part. The RAF got a big cheer in Tornadoes and Harriers, mainly because the commentry went something like this:

"And here's the 3 F16's from Norway, followed by 3 F16's from the Netherlands, followed by three F16's from Poland, followed by..." etc.
