The nine parachutists faced temperatures of -2C as they exited the aircraft, despite it being 17C on the ground.

Leading the display team this year was north Norfolk serviceman and team coach David Worboys.

The 40-year-old, from Sheringham, said his team were in freefall for around 45 seconds before they deployed their parachutes at 5,500ft.

Speaking about the view over the showground, flight sergeant Worboys, who now lives near Oxford, said: “The views were great and you can see that the good weather is around Norwich.”
