This was quite a slick move. The choppers had parked earlier at Snake Valley, I was honestly expecting them to depart and run in with the rest of the flypast.

Instead they started the flypast initially completely obscured at Snake Valley they lifted off in a formation into a hover they then transitioned forward flying directly over the parade at low level. I wasn't prepared for this but absolutely incredible to 21 choppers suddenly rise in unison.
