Around 15,000 people attended a new air show in Gloucestershire over the Bank Holiday weekend at Cotswold Airport.

Sunday saw the arrival of some spectacular vintage planes, including a display team of original Tiger Moths, a training aircraft for World War II which dates back to World War I.

A rare treat for event-goers was the last flying Lancaster bomber accompanied by a pair of Spitfires on its wing tips for a fly past - the same bomber which made the fly past for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee earlier in the year.

A Tornado roll demonstration by a crew from Brize Norton was also part of a two day spectacular which saw a homecoming for the Red Arrows, returning to the airfield - their 'spiritual home,' which formed their base for many years. Other attractions included best of British classic cars, from Minis to Rolls Royces, falconry displays and dog shows.
