Music from the RAF Honington Voluntary Band accompanied the ceremony on Angel hill. The highlight was the 8 Apache attack helicopters flew over as the Union Flag is lowered.

The Sunset Ceremony, a traditional parade to signal the end of the day and the mounting of an overnight guard, will start at 6.25pm, building towards a flypast by 3 Regt AAC’s Apache attack helicopters as the Union Flag is lowered.
