The Queen is set to celebrate a huge milestone as she marks her Platinum Jubilee. People across the UK will be celebrating alongside Her Majesty during the four-day bank holiday weekend.
Like many of us, the 96-year-old British monarch will celebrate her 70-year reign by watching a spectacular flyover which is set to travel over parts of Essex. Huge numbers are expected to flock to central London to honour the occasion.
The flypast is due to happen on Thursday, June 2, with a huge display of military aircrafts performing tricks over the south and east of England. The Red Arrows, which are set to perform for the Clacton Airshow in August, are also expected to be taking to the skies.

The Queen is also expected to watch from the Buckingham Palace balcony with other members of the Royal Family. The flight path is set to travel over Colchester and Southend. It is expected that residents in Southend can see the flyover at around 12.30pm until 1.15pm on June 2.
What is the flight route?
According to the I, it will start in the vicinity of the Wash, and travel over the North Sea, Southwold, parts of Suffolk and Southend. The fly-past will then head to London via Swaffham, Thetford and Colchester, before flying over Buckingham Palace. The dispersal will occur to the south and west of the London control zone over Kent, Surrey, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.
