With their spectacular stunts and world renowned close formation aerobatics, the team's brilliant skills and capabilities were met with rapture at this year's seafront event.

And they've provided a birds eye view of what they can see from their vantage point - a packed beach and clear blue skies.

With these pictures from Saturday's display, the shots show Bournemouth at its absolute best.
