Seething Airfield charity day a soaraway success
Organisers of a charity air day at a Norfolk village were on cloud nine today as 2,000 people marvelled at a series of impressive aerobatic displays.
Seething Airfield at Seething, near Loddon, held is 11th annual charity air day to raise funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance and the Big C cancer charity.
The afternoon saw eye catching and dare devil performances by a Yak 52, a pair of Mustangs, a Skyraider, a Jungmeister and Pitt Pair biplanes, which were said by organisers to be the star of the show.
There was a poignant moment as John Elliott, based at Ludham airfield, flew over the show in his autogyro as it was his last public performance.
A spokesman for the charity day said: 'We have had a fantastic day. The weather has been perfect for flying, despite the weather forecasts.'

The spokesman added it was too early to say how much was raised from the day, but said he doubted that it would match last year's total of �6,500 as fewer people turned up than 2010.
