RAF Marham exercised its freedom of the city with a parade to mark the Battle of Britain.
Crowds gathered outside City Hall in Norwich on Monday as servicemen and women from the Norfolk air base marched along St Peters Street.
RAF chefs, stewards and weapon technicians were among those taking part in the parade.
They were accompanied by The Band of the Royal Air Force College, which performed a variety of songs.
A Spitfire had been due to fly over the city at midday, but it had to cancel due to bad weather.

The parade marked the start of Battle of Britain week. Although other days during the battle saw fiercer fighting and heavier losses, September 15, 1940 is the only day when two large daylight raids were made on London.
A public Battle of Britain service will take place at Norwich Cathedral on Sunday. Everyone attending is asked to be seated by 10.45am for an 11am start.
