The Royal International Air Tattoo opened to the public for the first time today. Thousands were treated to the sights and sounds of the world's biggest military air show at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire.
There were two major draws today - the Red Arrows, who are celebrating their 50th anniversary, and the Prince of Wales - who was once a pilot himself.
Our Gloucestershire Correspondent Ken Goodwin was there - and captured a flavour of the event on his camera.
