Airbourne 2013, the Eastbourne annual 4 day free to watch flying festival took off on Thursday. Thousands of visitors and local people flocked to the seafront where they were treated to flying displays including a stunning show from the Red Arrows.
There were arena displays on the Western Lawns along with static exhibits from the armed services and fun activities for all the family.
A market selling goods, novelties, souvenirs and foods stretched along the promenade to the pier.
