Friday saw the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight steal the show, despite the challenging weather conditions. Seventy years on from the Battle of Britain, these "grand old ladies of the air cruised past the crowds who rewarded them with clapping and cheers. They pulled a few, gentle moves, before the Lancaster retreated to allow visitors to hear the sound that saved the nation; the unmistakable roar of the lone Spitfire."

The Red Arrows managed their only, low level, display of the festival.
And on Sunday it was only the Miss Demeanour, Vulcan, Typhoon and F-16 that could fly, despite optimism that the weather had changed. But it was all smiles on Monday, when the return of the festival was confirmed for the next three years.
