The 15th of July 1953 saw the biggest display of military air power that the United Kingdom has ever seen.
The Royal Air Force Review was laid on to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's coronation, which had taken place just one month before.
Held at RAF Odiham in Hampshire, now a frontline helicopter base, 300 aircraft alone were lined up for a static display.
A staggering 600 more from the RAF and other Commonwealth air forces took to the skies that summer afternoon.
With more than 50 different types of aircraft taking part, from Ansons to Venoms, there's too many to list, so why not take 25 minutes out to enjoy possibly the greatest plane-spotting video of all time - brought to you exclusively from the Forces TV archives.
