God save the Queen

Would never regard myself as a Royalist apart from the remarkable woman that has been our Queen for 70 years an incredible feat & one which we will never see the likes again
hearing of the fly past of 70 Aircraft including the Red Arrows @ 13:00
I took to my car & drove to Crystal Palace an advantage point looking over the city to watch this spectacle & wasn’t disappointed. 16 Helicopters :helicopter: WoW Apache,Merlins,Seacats . … Won’t bore you with the technical names . & of course cargo planes & jets a fly past would never be complete without the WW2 memorial flight consisting of the Lancaster,Spitfire, & the Hurricane . . The noise was fantastic from all aircraft involved . A wonderful a/noon it was .
If I may going back to our Queen it’s only when this lady’s in my conversation I use the word STOICISM . which I think sums up this truly amazing lady


She IS truly amazing.!

I personally think the monarchy should be disbanded after this great lady passes on

I’m glad we all have different opinions can you imagine what a world we’d live in . If we had the same notions …, yikes :joy:

End of monarchy? Could be the end of flypasts Jordan, happy with that?

Airshows would be a far better substitute than these distant fly-pasts magnificent as it was …

“ in my humble opinion :helicopter::+1:t6::helicopter:

Better still clear all this polluting junk from our skies and leave it to the BBB, birds butterflies and bees. Now a fly past of all the British raptors in formation, white-tailed sea eagle at front Merlin bringing up rear would float my boat

Hummmm :thinking:

Maybe …


Very good to see the coverage on TV also. Every channel has some angle on it for those that couldn’t get there. (Most people).
It definitely stirred up respect for the Queen, and I think she will remain in place until she goes rather than ‘retire’.
I’d rather have a non-intrusive Royal system than a Republic, any day, and we’ve managed with it for a thousand years.

Glad you enjoyed it.x


Can’t comment on the Queen as I am paternally descended from King Meuric of Dyfed, a rival Welsh king. :woozy_face:

It an odd one for me. The queen as done a great job as head of state but in principle we should be citizens not subjects however the system is better then having a voted head of state.

Hi joker can boast I’ve managed to get 15’ close to Liz at Buck house garden party just as an almighty hail storm of biblical proportions came from nowhere to send us all home like soggy cornflakes. Was forced to shake hands with prat prince A many years ago when visiting his (queens ) house at Windsor to look at rhododendrons. This was before all fuss but he didn’t endear himself to a gang of us horny handed sons of soil he was vain and preposterous. But you had me going for a bit you young scamp
