At the weekend the Queen, accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, reviewed thousands of her troops at Windsor Castle to mark her Diamond Jubilee. The highlight of the day was the flypast by the Royal Air Force, orchestrated as a salute to the monarch in her Jubilee year. A range of aircraft took part, ranging from the historical Battle of Britain team to the Chinooks currently used in war zones today. The ensemble was designed to replicate the shape of H. M.’s sceptre used in her original coronation in 1952, with some added formations saluting her Diamond Jubilee.
