A large formation of military aircraft will be rehearsing the King's birthday flypast in the skies above Norfolk and Suffolk this summer. 

Every year, aircraft from military bases from all over the country join together to fly over Buckingham Palace to celebrate the reigning monarch's birthday. 

More than 70 planes dating from the 1940s to the modern day performed the tradition over London last year for Charles' first birthday as king.

This year, aircraft from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire will be practising the exercise above East Anglia on June 3 and 4.

Rehearsals will begin at 11am and run until 1.30pm, with aircraft flying between 3,000ft and 10,000ft above sea level. 

Due to the nature of the aircraft involved, which include Eurofighter Typhoons, there may be periods of loud noise heard across the two counties during this time.

According to the RAF Coningsby Spotters Group, if rehearsals go well on June 3, the following day's practice will be cancelled.
