T'graph: "Navy Plane Which Sunk The Nazis To Perform Flypast At Jubilee Pageant"

Theres something not right here. When the last mil Flypast went over London they Barred the Harriers as they were single engine. So how the Swordfish is getting to fly?

Because modern technology has nothing on oak and piston technology.. hmmm

As the BBMF and the Red Arrows have overflown Buck House on numerous occasions, I think the single engine excuse is a little flawed.....

Didn't want to upset any Argentinians living in London? Afterall, a vote is a vote.
 
The Nazi's had numerous attempt's at hitting the Palace during the war, after countless attempt's they wing'd it. Jack or the Crabs haven't a hope in hell of hitting it in a one off attempt. All is safe.

Didn't London allow a WWII bomber (Heinkel? )to fly overhead a couple of years ago?

Wonder how Berlin would like a Lancaster to do the same .. probably not ..

Delighted that the Stringbag will be there; such an unsung type in WWII. It would also be nice if the Sea Fury joined the fun.

'Nazis' indeed. WTF? The Kriegsmarine wasn't exactly manned 100% by goose stepping Übermensch party members.

The brotherhood of the sea means sailors are more sympathetic to the plight of enemy sailors than pongos and crabs are to their distressed opposite numbers, usually. 'Nazis' my arrse.

Johnnie Walker the U-boat killer might have disagreed with you on that one.
