Gallery: Readers' Weston Air Day photos
PUBLISHED: 13:00 27 June 2013
CROWDS descended on Weston on Saturday as all manner of aircraft ascended through the skies and roared across the town - and here is a selection of just a few of the finest readers' photos from the day.
Amateur snappers took to iwitness24 to show off their shots of Weston Air Day including Red Arrows displays and a variety of period aircraft flying over the Grand Pier and the seafront.
North Somerset Councillor and executive member for tourism Felicity Baker said: “It was wonderful to see huge crowds gathered on the seafront and beach on Saturday, and people flocked to the prom in their droves despite the changeable weather on the day.
“This was the first year that North Somerset Council has organised the event, and we are hoping to build on this year’s success in years to come.
“We have also had some lovely comments and feedback from people who came along so it’s good to know that all the hard work that went into organising the day led to such a great experience for all.”
