An extended military flypast for the King's first birthday is set to be visible above Suffolk. 

Around 70 aircraft, including the Red Arrows, will take to the skies on Saturday to mark the Trooping the Colour for King's Charles III's birthday parade.

The display has been extended after the coronation day display was scaled back as a result of bad weather. 

Aircraft including multiple Typhoon jets, the Envoy IV CC1 and C-130 Hercules on its final ceremonial flight will set off from 15 locations around the country before heading to Buckingham Palace. 

The flypast will start in the North Sea at around 11.45am, before making its way down to London. 

According to Military Airshows, it will take a similar route to the one scheduled for the coronation flypast.

From there, it will fly over Essex before making its final journey to London.

The event will end in a show of red, white and blue from the pilots of the Red Arrows.

Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Rich Knighton, said: “We are very proud to be able to showcase our capabilities to our Commander-in-Chief, on this historic occasion for his majesty the King.

“We have planned a fitting and appropriate tribute for our monarch, that should be a true spectacle for the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.”

Air Officer Commanding 1 Group, Air Vice-Marshal Mark Flewin, said: “It is a great honour to be part of his majesty the King’s birthday celebrations, where the flypast is an opportunity for us to showcase formation, precision and excellence in the air to our Commander-in-Chief on such a special occasion.”
