Second Coronation flypast announced for UK cities

Four Texan T Mk 1 aircraft will take part in the second flypast after they take part in the Buckingham Palace flypast to salute King Charles III. 

RAF Valley said they were proud to have King Charles III as their Honorary Air Commodore. Leading the second flypast will be Wing Commander Chris Ball, Officer Commanding of 72(F) squadron.

The Wing Commander said: “All of us taking part in the flypast over London and Buckingham Palace are conscious that this is a huge privilege.

“As we make our progress back to RAF Valley we were very keen to also share the experience with as many locations as we can en-route, so the aircraft will remain in formation throughout. It is also our way of saying thank you to those in North Wales and the wider region who support us and all we do here at RAF Valley.

The Chester Standard said 72(F) squadron will fly over the Wrexham AFC stadium at 439 pm to salute the club on their recent promotion to the football league. 

Following Wrexham, they will fly over Chester before flying up the Mersey to Liverpool and then over the Wirral to Wales.

As they head into Wales, they will treat a flurry of towns to Coronation fervour including Prestatyn, Rhyl, Colwyn Bay, and Llandudno. 

The final stage of the flypast will include a trip to the Isle of Man where 72(F) will fly over the war memorial at Douglas before return back to Holyhead.
