This is amazing cockpit footage of the RAF Red Arrows performing a flyover over The Mall as part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The formation of nine ships is filmed from the back seat of one of the jets as the fencing team blow out red, white and blue smoke as the plane heads for Buckingham Palace.

The Queen and members of the Royal Family stood on the balcony as some 71 military aircraft – including the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight – entertained crowds along the route.

The famous red, white and blue smoke emitted by the Red Arrows is created by injecting diesel with a special dye into the engine of the BAE Systems T1 Hawk aircraft.

The Red Arrows, formally known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, have entered their 58th season.

Yesterday’s fly past will be one of the few times this year that the team will fly as a nine-ship formation. For most events this year, they will have seven jets in the air.

In total, the Red Arrows will be featured at 65 events across the UK this season, with visits to France, Denmark, Ireland, Jersey and Guernsey.

In addition to the Red Arrows, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight had a Lancaster bomber, three Spitfires and a couple of Hurricanes involved in the flypast.

Army, Royal Navy and RAF helicopters, including Chinooks, Apaches, Merlins and Wildcats, also flew over the palace.

Also, 15 RAF Typhoons flew past in formation marking number 70.
