The stage is set for day two of the Sunderland Air Show, and crowds are already flocking to the event.
There's music from the Band of the Royal Marines to get onlookers in the mood for today's displays.
Today's displays are taking place half-an-hour earlier than originally planned, so the action will start at 12:15, while it's still sunny.
All today's displays at the Sunderland International Airshow have been brought forward by 30 minutes.
The action starts 12:15 to make the most of the sunny weather.
The final day of Sunderland International Airshow gets underway later today.
There will be displays by a Russian built MiG jet fighter and a World War Two Spitfire.
RAF parachutists make a synchronised descent at the Sunderland Airshow.
A Spitfire and Hurricane treated the crowds at the Sunderland Airshow a spectacular and nostalgic display to commemorate what Winston Churchill described as our finest hour.
Both planes are credited with protecting the skies above Britain during World Wart Two.
Sea King helicopter crews of 771 Squadron provide search and rescue cover 24 hours a day in the south west of England.
They have been giving crowds at the Sunderland Airshow a taste of the kind of operations the carry out.
The Westland Sea King provides a wide range of services in both the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force.
It has seen action in wartime roles in the Falklands, the Gulf War, the Balkans conflict, Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Sea King is used by many other countries besides the UK including Australia, India, Norway and Germany.
Sharing their name with Sunderland's premiership side, the Black Cats are a favourite display team at the air show.
The name is derived from the Lynx Wildcat of Naval Air Squadron's badge and also the naval slag 'Black Catting', which mean to do something better than someone else.
