Sunderland City Council says it has 'raised the bar' in organising big events on Wearside following the 30th International Airshow over the weekend.
One of the world's most advanced aircrafts, the RAF Typhoon, brought the aerial display to an end on Sunday.
It was a fitting finale to the third day of the event which gave the crowds gathered along the seafront their chance to pay tribute to the centenary of the RAF.
While weather conditions had an inevitable effect on the flying programme, Sunday’s flyers included the Gyro, Tutor, Bronco, Chinook, and two Vampire jets.
Typhoon Display pilot Flt Lt Jim Peterson said performing at Sunderland in the Airshow’s 30th year and the Royal Air Force’s 100th was an "absolute honour and a privilege."
Crowd numbers were into the hundreds of thousands with large crowds for the Red Arrows on Saturday afternoon, plus arena displays and a stage programme. Friday evening’s programme of flying and live music also proved popular.
