NOW in its 12th year, the Bournemouth Air Festival has grown into the town's most popular events drawing people from far and wide.

Through the years, the event has evolved and seen some of the most famous aerobatic teams in the world take to the skies over Bournemouth.

Today we're taking a look back at some of our favourite moments from years gone by including the historic Vulcan over the seafront, the colourful Miss Demeanour, the hot air balloons that once lit up the beachfront and Night Air at the Piers.

You'll also find pictures from previous meet and greets, the jet suit pilots at last year's Air Festival, as well as the Red Arrows. 

See if you can spot yourself in the crowd in the gallery above.
