RAF 100 flypast: Aircraft pass Buckingham Palace as Queen watches on

The Queen the Prince of Wales and other members of the royal family will watch the flypast from the Buckingham Palace balcony at 1pm on Tuesday

Look to the skies above Buckingham Palace at 1pm today to see up to 100 aircraft in action.

It was 100 years ago on April 1, 1918, that the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service merged to create the RAF - the world's first independent air service.

It will feature the new F-35 Lightning - Britain's cutting-edge stealth fighter jet - which will fly at a public event for the first time. After cruising toward London and flying over the Olympic Park and the capital's financial center, they will roar past the royal family, who will be watching from the palace balcony.

Beginning a day of events, members of the royal family attended a service at Westminster Abbey.

More than 2,200 people packed Westminster Abbey for the service, with dignitaries including Prime Minister Theresa May, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn attending.

The Queen, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will be involved, as will Princes William and Harry and their wives Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

Prince George, four, smiled as he watched the aeronautical display, which celebrated the history of the RAF and featured the return of Second World War aircraft including the Spitfires and Lancaster bombers.

She will present a new Queen's Colour to the RAF in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace and make a brief speech before appearing on the balcony for the flypast.

During the flypast, the largest ever formation of Royal Air Force Typhoons spelt out 100 in the skies above Buckingham Palace.

When will the flypast take place?

Dressed in a pretty blue dress with a Peter Pan collar, the three-year-old once again melted hearts as she stood beside her big brother and excitedly watched the stunning display of military aircraft.
