Nearly 30,000 people visited this year’s Flying Legends Air Show at IWM Duxford.
Around 29,000 aviation enthusiasts attend the show at the historic Cambridgeshire airfield over the two days.
Spectators on the Saturday were treated to an opening display by the Red Arrows.
The world famous Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team made a spectacular return to Flying Legends.
A firm favourite with the crowds, the Reds' stunning display was the only chance to see their dynamic aerobatics at Duxford this year.

More than a dozen Spitfires took part in the air show, although some people later complained on social media that this year's Flying Legends didn't feature any Hurricanes.
However, visitors on Sunday did get the chance to see the restored de Havilland DH9 biplane in action.
