Sally B is due to have a practice flyover over London tomorrow at 2PM. Does anyone know where she will be flying over? Would it more than likely be the mall?

As far as I am aware the practice for the london flypast for all participants will be taking place from duxford tommorrow. Don't think there will be a practice flypast actually over London itself. Its worth a check on NOTAM's I may be wrong with this info though!

Thanks. I just assumed from what I read in the Sally B newsletter that she would be practising over London. Ah well, I'll see her on Saturday anyway! By the way, what is NOTAMS?

Here's a few lines from the CAA Aeronautical Information Circular (AIC 47/2005) which applies. Note. These are only a few abstracts, not the whole thing. So no-one should blame me if they fly into the airspace and get a £3,000 fine from the CAA! 1 A large formation of second world war aircraft will form the World War II 60th Anniversary Flypast on 10 July 2005 over Buckingham Palace; rehearsals for this flypast will be held on 7 and 8 July 2005 in the vicinity of Duxford/Cambridge. Due to the large number of aircraft involved, the Secretary of State for Transport has deemed it necessary to introduce the following Restriction of flying regulations under article 85 of the Air Navigation Order 2000: (a) Subject to paragraph (b), between 1255 and 1350 on 7 July 2005 and between 0925 and 1120 on 8 July 2005 no aircraft shall fly below 2000 ft amsl within the area bounded by straight lines joining the following points (see Annex A): 521342N 0002606E - 521248N 0003318E - 520406N 0003818E - 520100N 0003618E - 520000N 0003212E - 520624N 0001930E -520306N 0 Aircraft Transit Routes (a) 7 July 2005. Aircraft will commence departure from Duxford at 1305 remaining within the TRA (see Annex A) for the entire rehearsal and the recovery to Duxford. (b) 8 July 2005. Aircraft will commence departure from Duxford at 0935 remaining within the TRA (see Annex A) for the entire rehearsal and the recovery to Duxford. NOTE: Should the rehearsal on 7 July be successful, the rehearsal planned for 8 July and the associated TRA will be cancelled by NOTAM. (c) 10 July 2005 (i) Outbound from Duxford (aa) A section of 5 aircraft will depart Duxford at 1520 and route to via Ware and Lambourn remaining clear of controlled airspace under normal Rules of the Air to the ‘Fairlop’ hold within the TRA (see Annex B). (bb) The remainder of the Flypast (4 sections of aircraft) will depart Duxford between 1522 and 1528 and route to the East of Stansted remaining clear of Controlled Airspace under normal Rules of the Air to the ‘Motorway’ and ‘Brentwood’ holds within the TRA (see Annex B). (ii) Recovery to Duxford. After the Flypast at Buckingham Palace the Flypast will split into 3 sections and recover to Duxford under normal Rules of the Air as follows (see Annex B): (aa) One section will route: Northolt - M25 Junction 20 - Panshangar - Bassingbourn - Duxford. (bb) A second section will route: Elstree - Panshangar - Bassingbourn - Duxford. (cc) The last section will route: East of Panshangar - Bassingbourn - Duxford. NOTE: Formation aircraft not landing at Duxford will start their recovery to base from overhead Duxford.

The Red Arrows have already been over central London today, just after we won the Olympic bid and there is Jaguar (out of Coltishall, holding at Southwold) due to fly over Horseguards Parade at 15:48 BST. It should also be visible over Jn29 of the M25 and Alexandra Palace.

For what reason (assuming no connection with the Olympic bid news)?

In view of the fact that they circled Stratford, the proposed Olympic site, in V formation suggests a strong connection :)

Does the note mean that all elements will return to DX before heading home?
