A Red Arrows map shows the route the iconic jets are set to take next weekend. The King's Birthday is just one week away and the celebration will include a flyover from the iconic Red Arrows. The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team will soar over our skies on Saturday, June 15 to the delight of not only Charles but the London public too.

When they get into London the main display will be the planes flying above Buckingham Palace, but the planes will cross a load of the city before making their way to central London on their flight path.

The website Military Airshows has documented the route that the aircrafts are set to take for the King's Birthday and MyLondon has documented that information below.

Red Arrows flypast route

After starting at RAF Waddington the Red Arrows will fly out to sea and circumnavigate the Norfolk and the Suffolk Coast before entering over Aldeburgh, heading over Colchester and then Chelmsford before getting to the London border.

At around 1.04pm the Red Arrows will enter London over Fairlop in Ilford and then make their way to Stratford going over Redbridge and parts of Leyton. From Stratford they will head to Buckingham Palace, flying over Victoria Park, Cambridge Heath and Bethnal Green, Barbican, Covent Garden and Whitehall.

They will reach the Palace at 1.06pm before making their way out of London via Belgravia first. The Red Arrows will then fly over Kensington, Hammersmith and Chiswick on their way to Brentford. They exit London flying towards Heathrow Airport to then make their journey back up the country to RAF Waddington.
