One of the region's biggest events saw thousands of people attend the airshow to see aerobatic displays and appearances from well-known fighter planes.

The star attraction was the last airworthy B-17 in Europe, Sally B.

The crowd were in awe as the flying fortress, now based at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, circled the airfield.

Other highlights included an appearance from a MH434 Spitfire, P-51 Mustang and a daring display from the popular Old Buckenham-based Wildcats.
