Rain did not deter people from enjoying an incredible weekend of air displays and ground entertainment.
The sun shone on the opening day of the Weston Air Festival and Armed Forces Weekend which saw thousands of people visit the town to see the RAF Chinook Display Team, The Battle of Great Britain Display Team and the Strikemaster.
The Sunday's wet weather saw the RAF Red Arrows curtail their display due to low cloud levels and safety but a good time was still had by those who attended.
North Somerset Council spokesman Paul Hillman said the 'incredible weekend' was a booming success and it was 'an honour' to welcome the Red Arrows to Weston once again.
In the arena, the Re:ACT Musical Theatre Company performed to the crowd as well as the Red Barrows, HM Royal Marines Band Plymouth and Weston Brass.
