THE Tigers Freefall Parachute Display Team started day two's display programme, which packed them in along the clifftops and beachfront.

Impressive showings from the RAF Tucano then the Fireflies aerobatic team followed, before a host of festival favourites including The Blades, The Black Cat and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight brought the first afternoon session to an end.

An afternoon flypast from the United States Navy P-8A Poseidon surveillance aircraft, which flew in from its Italian airbase, hinted at the reach Bournemouth Air Festival has come to enjoy.

Historic warbirds simulated dog fights across the sea before the big boys – and the significantly noisier boys – turned up the power.

The Typhoon, Strikemaster Pair and Saab Draken made their presence felt.

A display from the Chinook and Rich Goodwin's extraordinary skills in his modified Super Pitts biplane rounded things off.
