The Red Arrows have cancelled their aerial acrobatic display at the Dartmouth Regatta - but are still promising to do flypasts. Changes to Civil Aviation Authority regulations have forced the Red Arrows to re-think their plans. The flypasts will take place at around 6.15pm this evening.
The Dartmouth Royal Regatta 2015 has opened in style - with the Type 23 Frigate HMS Monmouth, known as The Black Duke, acting as the official guard ship.
Here's 40" to get you in the mood for the colourful event which lasts until Saturday.
It's day one of Dartmouth's annual regatta and the event is already attracting big crowds. Today most of the fun is on land and on the water - with air displays taking place tomorrow and Saturday.
The Dartmouth Royal Regatta is getting underway today with alterations to its schedule in the wake of the Shoreham plane disaster.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has banned vintage jets from carrying out high-energy acrobatics over land, following the deadly crash in West Sussex.
The regatta will go ahead with its air display, but the routine of a Strikemaster jet has been amended.
A spokesman for the show said: "We have spoken to the pilot. Because (the CAA) are classing Dartmouth as over land he cannot perform high-energy manoeuvres.
"He's going to slow everything down and not do any acrobatics. We're very happy to comply with any restrictions the Civil Aviation Authority put in after the horrific accident. Until we find out more I think verging on the side of caution is very fair."
It's the opening day of the Dartmouth Royal Regatta. Thousands will take part in competitions on the water.
But the schedule for the air displays has had to be altered after the introduction of new restrictions following the Shoreham plane crash. The Civil Aviation Authority has banned vintage jets from carrying out high energy acrobatics.

Today marked the start of the annual Dartmouth Royal Regatta. The first event took place in 1822 and over the years it's become much more than yachting and boating, as Bob Cruwys reports.
The first event took place nearly 200 years ago.
Since then it has become much more than yachting and boating:
Dartmouth’s 190th Royal Regatta opened today.
The Regatta is based around a schedule of rowing and sailing events, but also incorporates a busy programme of activities including air displays, fireworks, a large fair, and many other smaller events that happen in and around the town centre.
Nearly 100,000 people visit Dartmouth during the Regatta period, making making it one of the largest public events in the South West.
