VIDEO: Highlights from day one of Airbourne

Waiting for Video...

As crowds prepare for a second day of entertainment at Airbourne, we take a look back at the highlights of yesterday’s show.

The opening day of the four-day event took off without a hitch as thousands of people watched in wonder as planes performed in the sky.

The ever-popular Red Arrows soared among the clouds in the late afternoon, celebrating their 50th anniversary with a colourful acrobatic display.

Earlier in the day, The Blades and the Wingwalkers took to the skies before history was made with the two remaining flying Lancaster bombers taking off together.

Both the Red Arrows and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will entertain the crowds on all four days of the annual event.
