The Old Buckenham Airfield will be bringing a piece of the stateside back to Norfolk with The American Fly show.

The event at the former United States Army Air Forces base will see a display of the largest collection of US army air force equipment since the Second World War, with everything from vehicles to a camp site and clothing.

Vintage car lovers will have a chance to see over 40 hot rods on display, as well as three sets of Second World War reenactors.

The 453rd Bombardment Group Museum will be open throughout the day and American aircraft of all eras are invited to join a special air display.

Entry is free for all visitors, PPR is essential and landing fees are half price. Pilots will be marshalled into position on arrival.
