Love it . . . Six red arrows maintain their formation while two others circle, forming a heart shape around them.
Eight aircraft from the air force thrilled 32,000 spectators at the Battle of Britain Airshow, while thousands of enthusiasts from around the world flocked to the premiere demonstration.
The flights took place over the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, Cambridgeshire, which was celebrating its 50th anniversary with air shows.
Some 18 operational Spitfires and four Hurricanes starred, while two vintage Lancaster bombers and a B-17 “flying fortress” also took to the skies.
Duxford Aerodrome served as a former RAF base in the final years of the Second World War.
The museum’s deputy director, Tim Strofton, said: “We are the leading aviation museum in Europe and that is what Duxford does best.”
“People come from all over the world because they won’t see anything like this anywhere else.
“The opportunity to see 18 Spitfires and Hurricanes flying in formation is unparalleled anywhere else.”
