A De Havilland Tiger Moth is among the aircraft expected to be on show at a north Norfolk airfield over the weekend.

The Norfolk & Norwich Aero Club's 90th anniversary and reunion will be held on Saturday, May 20 and Sunday, May 21 at Northrepps international airport, Cromer.

The weekend, which is free to attend, will feature a fly-in of aircraft from across the region and be a chance for old members of the club, which was first formed in 1927, to reunite and bring along old photographs and flying memorabilia.

Action gets underway on both days at 10am and airfield operator Chris Gurney said: 'We have tracked down about 70 people who learned to fly at the club, plus some of the engineers and office staff.

'We hope to have about 25 aircraft on show each day, including a Cessna, Chipmunk and a French Rallye, and some that were based at the club.'
