AIC M022/2018 is downloadable here ( just over half-way down the list ) :
http://www.nats-uk.ead-it.com/restricted/index.php%3Foption=com_content&task=blogcategory&id=162&Itemid=59.html

Or for those who don't want to download the .pdf ....
The area is basically a corridor running South from Scampton to Cranwell, then Southeast from Cranwell to Beccles ( via Marham ) with the main area being out to sea East of Beccles.

Edited to add.....
If you look on the same page, you'll see AIC M025/2018.....this covers the flypast proper and includes a routing map & timings ( including alternate timings ) for the flypast.

Those NOTAMs are for the Queens Birthday Flypast, not the RAF100 one in July.

Of those, the Puma, Tucano and Tornado are to be retired in 2019. Some of the Voyagers have been returned to lease and the Hawk T Mk1 is on its last legs so I guess this will be a bit of a farewell flypast. They just need to add a Hercules because these are being sold off too.

From the list published on PPRuNe, you can add a single Hawk ( representing RAFAT )
So unless more are added*, the flypast will consist of a grand total of 21 aircraft.

* I'd expect the BBMF, for example.

Edited to add :
Last year's flypast consisted of 29 aircraft

Not sure if the Hawk made it to the party, certainly wasnt tagged on at the end about 3 miles from Cranwell.

Not sure where you get the Hawk OSD from.

The Reds were slated to retain Hawks for a fair number of years yet, and the Puma HC.2s current OSD is 2025

There is usually enough space in St James’s Park. You might struggle with trees in some parts of the park though.

I usually go about half way down the Mall, (which they open up just before the Flypast).

I'm in London tomorrow but not for the festivities so I'll only have my 16-70mm lens with me. Looking at being in Trafalgar Square when they fly over and try and get Admiralty Arch in the frame for some of them.

a single Hawk has just flown over Colchester - I am assuming to do a weather / cloud level check on the route.

The cloud cover here is fairly low atm.

You Say
"Some of the Voyagers have been returned to lease"
would you like to expand on this because as far as I know all Voyagers are in service as they should be apart form the ones(4) used by to Jet2,Thomas Cook and Air Tanker

I believe 13:00 is the time.

Usually comes over Colchester about 12:50, joing with the BBMF nearer London. The Red's come over a few mins later, so they catch the tail of the fly-past over the Palace.
