Two more names have been added to the line up at this year’s Weston Air Festival and Armed Forces Weekend, but a fan favourite will not perform.

The RAF Typhoon has confirmed its list for the coming season and Weston has not made the cut.

The Typhoon has wowed the crowds at Weston Air Festival for the past few years but the event did not make its 2019 calendar of shows.

However the Great War Display Team has said it will feature in the show after sharing pictures of its training programme.
