Here are some of the interesting aircraft on display, on the ground and in the air. The annual event must make an interesting change for the air traffic controllers, as display and regular traffic use the same runway, under watchful eyes in the gleaming new control tower. The tower painted on the old Airfix box-top is now consigned to the past.
Airliners sharing runway space with the display aircraft included types from Embraer (above) and Airbus (below).
The Groupe Trenchant flew ex-Armee de l'Air Potez Air Fouga Magisters in a neat four-ship display.
Britain's Red Arrows display team put on their usual immaculate performance in BAe Hawk jets.
Classic World War II heavy bomber, the Avro Lancaster in flight and parked.
Sea Lynx anti-sub helo in hover mode.
Another de Havilland design, this Hornet Moth dates from the 1930s
Superlative Spitfire, a late model from the last days of World War II.
Swedish trio (above, top to bottom) Saab J-29, Saab 105, and J-37 Viggen.
Ex-French service North American T-28 two-seater, and (below) our Socata four-seater in which we flew to and from Jersey. Guess who's waving in the back!
