Curious, was this part of The Flypast shown on any of the TV Coverage?

I was down Folly road when they all flew over Mildenhall - what a great sound.

Probably won't see the likes of that again unless of course they do a farewell flypast?

Watched this formation at Duxford. Can anybody confirm exactly where in Normandy the formation went as reports seem very confused ?
Assume this formation was only flown on the 5th June ?
