As a lad we lived in Woodford. Not the Woodford of her birthplace but Woodford North East London.
The flight path took a route across Fairlop Waters and then across East London and on the the Mall.
Every year on the week leading up to The Trooping of the Colour I would see Vulcans flying past at exactly 12:58. At 13:02 they’d be back tracking. They were too far away to identify individual aircraft but It was something I looked forward to every June.
All Hail the Mighty Vulcan !!!
