Staff at Norwich Airport have looked to the skies for inspiration to raise the spirits of keyworkers during the coronavirus pandemic.
The team in air traffic control started at the end of March by putting up a rainbow in their tower which can be seen from the NDR.
The airport is still open to ensure key workers can catch flights to offshore oil rigs.
The identity of the control room’s very own superman is air controller Shane Preece.
