It's one of the busiest military air stations in Europe but on Air Day weekend, Yeovilton suddenly gets a whole lot busier. Aircraft have been flying in from all over the world to take part in the annual event.
These jets are from the Swiss display team Patrouille Suisse - Switzerland's version of the Red Arrows, which will also be here. Overseeing it all, the new Commanding Officer of the base, who's only been here since April, having moved from a posting in Hawaii.
Also performing this weekend will be the Royal Jordanian Falcons display team, with some breathtaking aerobatic stunts in store.
It's one thing watching an air display like this from the ground but our reporter Bob Cruwys got a chance to experience it from inside the cockpit.
As many as forty thousand people will pour through the gates at Yeovilton tomorrow to see five hours of flying displays, as well as the helicopters based here.
Commander Terry Tyack says it's a great opportunity for the base to show the public what they do as it's their 70th anniversary.
