Military aircraft are set to soar over Buckinghamshire today before the England women's football team takes on Germany at Wembley Stadium.

A C-130 Hercules transport aircraft will be flanked by two Typhoon fighter jets as they pass over parts of the county this afternoon.

The aircraft will travel over Bisham, Wooburn Green, Beaconsfield and Iver Heath at around 4.50pm, travelling from west to east.

See the map below to track the full route.


The aircraft will set off from RAF Brize Norton at 4.42pm and are due to pass over Wembley Stadium at 4.57pm, just moments before the 5pm kickoff.

An all-female RAF crew are set to lead the flypast, with the Hercules aircraft to be crewed by three women.

Flight Lieutenant Lauren, who has been in the RAF for 12 years, will captain the Hercules. 

She said: "I've flown missions all over the world with the RAF, but this will be one of the most memorable.

"It has been inspiring to watch the Lionesses progress and I will be loudly cheering them on as soon as I land back at RAF Brize Norton."

The Defence Secretary Ben Wallace also wished the "best of luck" to the Lionesses.

"It's a landmark day for English football and women's sport and it's fantastic that the Royal Air Force will be marking the occasion with a flypast featuring an all-female aircrew," he said.
