Two iconic Second World War fighters will be the star attractions at a flying show this summer.

The Spitfire and Mustang will be performing at the Charity Heritage Wings and Wheels show at Tibenham Airfield on August 3.

They will be backed by aerobatic displays from British aerobatics champion David Jenkins in his Edge 360 and formation aerobatics from the WildCats Pitts team, the Aerostars with their Yak 50's and the Red Sparrows Chipmunk display team.

Event organiser Eric Ratcliffe said: 'We are pleased to announce a substantial flying programme with an action-packed day on the ground, as well as in the air. It will be an exciting day for everyone.'

As well as the starring Mustang P51 and Spitfire, there will be a Yak 11, a Harvard, Jungmann, Christen Eagle, a Wattisham-based air sea rescue Sea King helicopter and a demonstration of the E-GO.
