GALLERY: Battle of Britain spectacle returns


New additions to the flight schedule and a tribute to frontline workers were among the highlights of this year's Battle of Britain Air Display.

The annual spectacle defied the cloudy weather with an action-packed display that started around 11:00 and culminated with the Red Arrows, who added a tribute to key workers to their routine in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The two-hour spectacle in the skies featured a host of impressive aircraft - including a Boeing P8 Poseidon, Muscle Biplane, Spitfires and RAF Typhoon - as a number of highly-skilled teams were seen in full flight above the Bailiwick.
