A historic Spitfire, Hurricane and US-built Dakota aircraft entertained crowds at the Cotswold Air Show.

The WWII aircraft were marking the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain at the show in Kemble, Gloucestershire.

The Red Arrows, which were based on the site for almost 20 years, also put on a display for aviation enthusiasts.

The two-day event was staged at Costwold Airport, formerly RAF Kemble, to raise money for the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.
