RAF Grand Flypast to come over Portsmouth

Have your say

THE RAF Grand Flypast is set to go over the Solent today.

The day is a celebration of 72 Squadron – the only remaining squadron to fly Spitfires in the Battle of Britain – which is celebrating its centenary.

The flight - made by four RAF Tucano aircraft - is part of the first leg of the journey, as it heads to RAF Tangmere.

The flypast is due to approach from the east and head over Southsea seafront just before 10am.
