We had a fantastic number of readers who sent us photos of this year’s airshow. Here is the complete gallery of all of the photo submissions sent to us through iwitness24.
Weston-super-Mare was blessed with blue skies and sunshine at the air festival and armed forces weekend last week as the Red Arrows headlined a spectacular show.
Town centre manager Steve Townsend said the event was a ‘massive success’ and the ‘best ever’ as thousands of people filled the Beach Lawns and seafront to celebrate the armed forces.

“The event was a massive success, bringing a huge boost to the local economy and was a trouble-free weekend.”
