Flypast at Yeovilton today

Driving a couple of miles away from Yeovilton this morning saw a formation comprising Swordfish, 3x Wildcat, Sea King Asc7, 3x Merlin and fourth Wildcat that appeared to be acting as photoship. Anyone know what was being celebrated or commemorated?

Possible re-hersal for tomorrow - though I'd have thought the weather too iffy for the Swordfish.
I have a good pilot and a safe pilot. And the safe pilot is in charge of the good pilot.

yes it is rehearsal for one of the two flypasts tomorrow for the QE commissioning. Notam says 1140 to 1220. Weather forecast is not great, agree Swordfish very unlikely.
