Displaying its new Queens Diamond Jubilee colour scheme, a RAF Tucano will make a flypast over Surrey and the south-east on Wednesday May 2.


The aircraft, used by the RAF for training, will then perform its first official display in July over Loseley Park, near Guildford, at the RAF Musical Salute to the Queens Diamond Jubilee, which features the chart-topping Military Wives Choir.


Created by designer Jo Gough, with help from display pilot Flt Lt Jon Bond and display manager Flt Lt Rich Keeling, the paint scheme uses elements of red, white and blue to create racing line stripes along the sides of the aircraft, while the RAF Roundel is created on the top surface of the wings.


The centrepiece of the scheme is a white E II R and a traditional crown, against a red background.
