Acr27274255196608-20305398A flypast over St Mary’s Church in 2018 in celebration of 100 years of the Royal Air Force

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.
