Dozens of historic planes have taken to the skies over Somerset in memory of one of Britain's most decorated pilots.
Eric Brown died at the age of 97 earlier this year, after a career in the Navy in which he flew almost 500 different types of aircraft. Now, he has been remembered at RNAS Yeovilton with a flypast.
Captain Eric Brown, fondly known as Winkle, was a true flying legend. During the war he experimented with as many as eight different aircraft a day, including those captured from the enemy, and survived 11 crashes.
He was also the first pilot to land the de Havilland Vampire on the deck of an aircraft carrier.
On Thursday, hundreds of people gathered at Yeovilton to pay tribute to "the world's greatest test pilot", including his son who said that he was "deeply honoured":
In 2015, Eric Brown came to Yeovilton to see a bust unveiled in his honour at the Fleet Air Arm Museum. He told ITV News how important it was to him to help inspire the Navy pilots of the future.
One of those he has inspired is 11 year old Eachan Hardie from Dorchester, who wrote to Eric Brown asking for advice and received a letter back.
His legacy will continue - a flight skills scholarship is being named in his honour, to ensure the name Eric Brown, so important to the history of Naval aviation, will be attached to its future too.
