The annual RAF Waddington International Air Show is taking place this weekend in Lincolnshire.
More than 100,000 visitors are expected to enjoy the spectacle of a seven-hour flying display above RAF Waddington airbase.
Around 50 aircraft will be taking part in the airborne displays, featuring the Lancaster, Hurricane and Spitfire from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight as well as modern aircraft such as the Typhoon from the Royal Air Force display team.
The gates open at 8am and the air displays start at 10:00am and finish at 5:30pm on both days.
The Red Arrows, which are based locally at RAF Scampton, are set to be one of the highlights of the day that has more than 20 different nations taking part.
Another local favourite, the Vulcan XH558 has sadly been forced to cancel its appearance after suffering a double engine failure and although engines No.1 and No.2 of the aircraft have been replaced, it is awaiting its first test flight and will not be included this weekend.
The air show also offers a chance for members of the public to get close to some of the most impressive military and civilian aircraft such as the C130H Hercules, with an extensive ground display in two exhibition hangers.
Visitors have the opportunity to get their photo taken in the cockpit of an F4 Phantom and a Lightening with helicopter pleasure flights running throughout the event.
Gates do not close until 7:30pm, allowing time to enjoy some of the extra attractions such as a funfair and classic cars, after the flying displays have ended.
Running since 1995, the Waddington International Air Show aims to raise public understanding and awareness of the Royal Air Force and its modern role with proceeds of the show going to the RAF and local charities.
To help spectators get the most from the show, organisers are encouraging people to download the official mobile app .
