Inspired by a real event from 5 April 1968 when a RAF Hawker Hunter pilot flew his aircraft through the spans of Tower Bridge.  Read his story here:

I don't have a Hunter in my XP11 so used the next best thing:  the Hawk! :)

That's fantastic flying!  And I'm stunned about how real the bridge looks, I mean you can actually count the bricks! I think X-Plane will be a huge contender in the future and I'm hoping LM is taking notice and improves it too.  Competition is always good, especially for us.

John, it is a very interesting story.  Only became aware of it several years after the event.

Thanks Jack.  The London area scenery in TEGBS is something else.  Like you, I hope it continues to improve.

Well done Laurence! I hope that you buzzed the House of Parliament afterwards! :D

 

That was before the bridge Paul.  For some reason the screenie didn't work.
