SUPER Saturday was in full swing on a bumper third day of the Bournemouth Air Festival, with crowds looking to find any spare room to enjoy the action.

From regular performers to a few new faces, the biggest day of the festival did not disappoint, as an estimated 390,000 people descended on Bournemouth beach.

Flying was kicked off by the fan's favourite Red Arrows, who put on a stunning performance to set the action off in style.

This was followed by the innovative Gravity Industries Jet Suit Display Team, who returned after pilot Dr Angelo Grubisic ditched in the water during Friday evening's performance.

While Dr Grubisic successfully completed his flight this afternoon, using a jet suit he had never used before, chief test pilot Richard Browning suffered an engine failure during his trip from Bournemouth Pier.

The team announced several hours later that they would be unable to fly during Saturday's Night Air schedule.

Throughout the afternoon flying continued at almost non-stop pace, with a range of aerospace brilliance on show.

The AeroSuperBatics Wingwalker team wowed crowds with their tandem flight routine.

Acrobatic wingwalking duo Katie Hobbs and Kirsten Pobjoy said the experience was incredible and amazing.

"It is the best thing I have ever done in my life," Kirsten said.

"When you are up there it is just so beautiful."

As the day progressed and the sun continued to shine, the high-octane moves of the Breitling Jet Display Team amazed audiences.

The civilian aerobatic team are performing at the Bournemouth Air Show for the first time, after years of effort from event organisers.

Leader of the team Jacques Bothelin has flown more than 3,000 displays all over the world.

Air Festival director Jon Weaver told the Echo: "What a massive Saturday it has been, a great line-up, hundreds of thousands have turned out to come to the festival and we're looking forward to a Super Sunday."

The afternoon of entertainment was closed by the amazing manoeuvres of the RAF Chinook, with the display team crew performing at their last show before returning to normal operational duties, before the Blades delivered their breathtaking skill and dynamic manoeuvres.

The day also included appearances from he B-17 Flying Fortress ‘Sally B’, the precision descents of the Tigers, the heritage of the Great War Display Team and a host of Battle of Britain Memorial Flight planes.
