The Woodspring Wings club organised the event in Claverham Drove, with around 2,000 people visiting the event each day.

There were a number of trade stalls and enthusiasts flew their model aeroplanes on both Saturday and Sunday.

People came from as far as Essex and Wales to enjoy the spectacle.

Woodspring Wings secretary John Dudley said: “It went extremely well and it was good fun.”

The event raises money for charities in the area, which will be chosen once the final total has been added up.
