An all-female RAF crew are set to lead a flypast over Wembley Stadium before England women’s football team take on Germany in the final of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 final.

A C-130 Hercules transport aircraft, crewed by three women, will be flanked by two Typhoon fighter jets as they fly over the stadium for England’s historic fixture.

The aircraft are set to fly over the ground at 4:57pm, immediately after both national anthems and before the game kicks off.

Flight Lieutenant Lauren, who has been in the RAF for 12 years, will captain the Hercules. 

She has deployed all over the world, including Afghanistan, where she helped train the first female Afghan pilots, and said she was proud to be piloting the lead aircraft.

Watch: Queen's Guard put on special football-themed performance ahead of Women’s Euro Final.

"I've flown missions all over the world with the RAF, but this will be one of the most memorable," she said.

"It's been inspiring to watch the Lionesses progress and I will be loudly cheering them on as soon as I land back at RAF Brize Norton."

The Defence Secretary Ben Wallace also wished the "best of luck" to the Lionesses.

"It's a landmark day for English football and women's sport and it's fantastic that the Royal Air Force will be marking the occasion with a flypast featuring an all-female aircrew," Ben Wallace said.

Ticketless fans have been urged not to make their way to the Wembley area tomorrow. 

Instead, they are strongly encouraged to enjoy the flypast and match via live TV coverage.
