Some of the country's best-loved aircraft have taken to the skies of Norfolk as part of a popular county air show.
Enthusiasts packed into Old Buckenham Airfield to see a series of stunning aerial displays, including an RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
The special flypast of Spitfire, Lancaster and Hurricane whisked overhead in the beaming sunshine in honour of the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
The event on Sunday attracted hundreds of people, although organisers said the attendance had been hit by the England v Germany World Cup game.

On the ground, crowds were treated to exhibitions of classic military vehicles and numerous trade stands.
