THIS IS the moment the coronation flypast made its way over Wrexham's Racecourse ground.

On Saturday, May 6, Four Texan T Mk 1 aircraft of 72(F) Squadron took part in the Buckingham Palace flypast to salute His Majesty The King following the coronation.

In Wrexham, the aircraft were spotted at around 5pm in the afternoon.

They also passed over Chester, the River Mersey, Prestatyn, Llandudno, Douglas in the Isle of Man and Holyhead on Anglesey.

The flypast over the Racecourse was said to be as a nod to the Reds' recent promotion back to the football league. 

The 3-1 home win over Boreham Wood on April 22 ended that painful 15-year wait for Wrexham fans as they were also crowned National League champions.


As well as the Racecourse, the aircraft also flew over Chester Racecourse and Cathedral before heading up the Mersey estuary passing the Liver Building and then crossing over to the Wirral to hug the coast over Prestatyn, Rhyl, Colwyn Bay and then Llandudno.

They then headed out to Douglas in the Isle of Man to overfly the war memorial and then to Valley over Holyhead on Anglesey.

The Ministry of Defence has since released a series of fantastic pictures capturing the moments the aircraft flew over those areas.
