Woodspring Model Air Show took place on Saturday and Sunday in Claverham, and saw spectators enjoy a thrilling sight of remote-controlled planes taking to the sky.

This year's event was a milestone one for Woodspring Wings and it marked its 30th anniversary.

Andy Johnson's one-tenth model of the world's most famous jet - Concorde - was arguably the biggest draw of the weekend.

But a Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, model Vulcan Bomber and replica Red Arrows jets meant there was a lot to see and enjoy across both days.
