That's very informative and interesting and thanks very much for posting it. Never seen it displayed like that before; great. It does show how important transport is in the modern RAF though.

You'd have thought for the 90th birthday we'd have been able together a few more! Would have been good to see a a few echelons of GR4s and Typhoons. And why isn't the Tutor wing represented!? :P

Tutors are only leased. Perhaps there are so few just to show her how feeble her Air Force is. :P

Strange routing by the transport element however,as the formations of Herk/King Airs,A400 and 146/C17 routed down the approach on 27R at Heathrow before turning back towards Northolt....usually everything follows the A40 until ott Northolt.....also both Tornados and Typhoons seemed to split from thier respective formations just after passing Northolt,rather than continuing on....weather did look bad out to the west,so poss reason for this? Reds didn't come as there is no Northolt families day today.

Just saying
More Royals on display on the balcony than aircraft in the air (without the Reds)
Absolute shame from days of old...

The Hercules, Two King Airs, Atlas, Hercules, C–17 and Bae 146 came along H3 over us at Teddington Lock.
Very exciting and a definite change from Robinsons, Apaches, Chinooks and the expensive sky taxis

XT949 was allocated to a Northrop Shelduck D.1. It was unbuilt, and the allocated not taken up.

Perhaps the poster means ZJ949?
