The Grand Flypast - Centenary of 72(R) Squadron The Grand Flypast - Centenary of 72(R) Squadron

The Grand Flypast

On Tuesday the 27th of June a formation of four Tucano T1 aircraft from 72(R) Squadron conducted a 'Grand Flypast' to commemorate the Squadrons Centenary.

The Nationwide route will overfly all bar two of the Squadrons previous bases and encompass locations linked to the Squadrons surviving WWII veterans.

The formation will also include a specially painted Tucano which has been designed to recognise 72 Squadrons unique position as the only remaining Squadron in the Royal Air Force to have flown Spitfires during the Battle of Britain.

 

This Route has been recreated for FlightGear.
