A daring display from the Blades Aerobatic Display Team was one of the highlights of the annual Seething Airfield Charity Airday.
The thousands of visitors had their eyes locked on the skies above the airfield so they did not miss the vintage war birds and display planes.
Two Spitfires drew waves from the excited crowd and there were also appearances from a Mustang, Cessna Bird Dog, Piper L-4 and a Tiger Moth.
There was also a hair-raising display from a Yak 52 and a flypast from a Hawker Nimrod.
Although the flying was the main draw for those who attended the event, there was a lot to see and do on the ground.
There were static aircraft and vehicle displays, morris dancing and a fun dog show.
The airfield's former wartime control tower, which has been turned into a museum, was also open during the day.

David Smith, a member of the organising committee, said: 'It was a really good day. There was a quite a good turnout.
'The dog show was packed out. People were watching the morris dancing and visited the stalls.
'The displays were all really good. My highlight was the Blades, who are made up of ex-Red Arrows pilots. They are really fantastic and there was some close formation work.
'The two Spitfires were also fantastic. The Spitfire is a big draw every year. There was a lot of waving and clapping from the crowd.'
The event was this year raising funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance and East Anglia's Children's Hospices. Mr Smith said he hoped the event had raised a lot of money for the two good causes.
