A military flypast will take place on 2 June to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
“The flight path traces the M11 and A12, so the grounds of St Mary’s are an ideal vantage point,” said a spokesperson for the Friends of Wanstead Parish, which is hosting a celebration event at the church from 11am to 3pm.
“Classic cars will be on show and food and refreshments will be available. For young plane spotters, we will also have a bouncy castle and carousel.”
The planes are scheduled to fly over Wanstead between 12.40pm and 1.15pm.
