The King's birthday flyover rehearsal has been spotted over Suffolk with fighter jets and cargo planes flying through the county's skies.

Modern stealth fighters including eight RAF Typhoons travelled over the region on Monday during a rehearsal for the event on June 15. 

Involved in the rehearsal was an RAF Voyager, an air-to-air refuelling tanker that resembles a passenger plane, as well as the Globemaster (C-17), a long-range heavy-lift transport aircraft.

The large formation was spotted over the county as the air convoy made its way to the North Sea from RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire.

The planes flew over Southwold, Beccles, Halesworth and Harleston. 

On June 15, both the Red Arrows and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight are scheduled to take part in the King's Birthday Flypast

According to Military Airshows the display will start over Suffolk again this year.

The formation will start in the North Sea near Lowestoft and Southwold. 

It will then fly over the parts of the A12, before taking in Ipswich.

The display will then head further south, eventually flying over Buckingham Palace at about 1.45pm.
