Hundreds of youngsters have spent Easter Sunday hunting high and low for Easter eggs at the Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Air Museum in Flixton.
The charity Easter event was held to raise vital funds and awareness for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Anne Riding, 35, who attended the day with her two children, said: 'What a lovely day it has been. Both my boys have loved searching among the old planes and cars - it's a perfect setting for an Easter egg hunt!
'If they run it again we will certainly come back and I think the boys want to come back again in the summer to look at the whole museum as there is so much to see!'
The free to enter event saw visitors of all ages exploring the museum's 60 plus displays of First World War and Second World War aeroplanes, cars, helicopters and artefacts - sparking interest in the young and summoning memories for elder visitors.

Another Easter treat youngsters enjoyed was a selection of miniature planes and a replica of an East Anglian Air Ambulance which had been crafted and designed by museum member Ken Huckle and volunteer carpenters.

'It has been a very successful day and our thanks go to Morrisons of Diss, Diss Rotary Club and Sainsbury's for donating the 230 eggs.'
Mr Bell added: 'It has certainly been a very busy day. The East Anglian Air Ambulance obviously has a big draw and we have quite an amazing selection of displays here and lots of people have said they will return as there is so much more to discover here – you can spend all day looking round!'
