60 Year Jubilee Flypast

This was a great display of aircraft flying towards and over Windsor Castle to celebrate our Queen reigning for 60 years. I remember the coronation very well. I feel so old. The photos of the planes are not very good. It was a very grey, heavy cloudy day. And with the planes being a grey colour they were almost invisible. I tried different settings on the camera between flights but could not get any colour in the photos. Check out this video of the event http://www.lowflyingphotography.com/windsor-87-aircraft-flypast-queens
