The famous Red Arrows flew over Norfolk in celebration of an air base’s 100th anniversary.
All eyes were on the skies as the iconic display team joined in the festivities for RAF Mildenhall’s Big Birthday Bash.
In a route that included flying by the Suffolk base, the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team was visible over western parts of the county for a short spell on Friday afternoon.
The unmistakable aircraft squadron took off from RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire at 2.18pm, before a circuitous path brought them over Norfolk on their way to Mildenhall.
Shortly after 2.25pm the jets thundered through the county’s airspace, flying near or over towns including Hunstanton, Fakenham and Dereham.
