STOP THE PIGEON (2008)

Percy the pigeon leads the way for Britain's Red Arrows flying formation team, the RAF (Royal Air Force's) sky 'show pony', a highly disciplined team flying Hawk Jets. Unfortunately, the display team had lost their way, the lead pilot's A-Z manual getting sucked out of the Hawk's window. They were to do a fly over Buckingham Palace - so Percy came to the rescue and flying at Mach 2 he led in the Arrows on time and in formation passing Trafalgar Square and saying hello to Admiral Nelson before saying Hi to Ma'am and the other Royals on balcony duty
