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.
Low cloud meant a ‘Ratty Flatty’ at the Guernsey Air Display for us this morning. Still great to be back at the show though! @gsyairdisplay #blades #guernsey #guernseyairdisplay #airshow pic.twitter.com/6jKZaMesub— The Blades (@thebladesteam) September 9, 2021

Yesterday our competition winner James Wood took to the skies with the amazing @BladesTeam_ We captured some fantastic cock-pit shots as the plane performed breathtaking stunts over #Guernsey. James was a great sport & loved every minute! ????????https://t.co/QA3QAO68uE— Swoffers (@Swoffers) September 9, 2021
