The name of a four-year-old girl from Hethersett will soar through the skies after her great uncle won a competition.
Little Isy Dowson's name will be painted on the side of a jet flown by Royal Air Force daredevils, the Red Arrows.
Hadrian Jeffs, from Long Stratton, entered a competition in a aviation magazine produced by Key Publishing.
Mr Jeffs sent in a drawing of the Red Arrows to the publisher, winning the right to have a name put on the side of one of the aerial display team's planes for their 2017 acrobatics season.
He said: 'I didn't have to send it in, but I always enter competitions if I can with a postcard. I have been doing it for over 20 years now.
