These images show the moment the RAF Falcons parachute display team made a dramatic entry into the Royal Norfolk Show from 3,500ft.

The nine parachutists faced wind speeds of up to 23mph after exiting the aircraft, but managed to keep a tight formation as they entered the grand ring.

Flt Lt Kirk Evans, who is on his first year as a jumper, said: 'The conditions were challenging but the lads coped really well.

'When you start to hear the crowds coming into play as you come down it is a great feeling. We always enjoy jumping into a show like this.'

The team will be making a second jump at around 5pm today, weather permitting.
