Flying displays on the opening day of the Royal International Air Tattoo have begun under blue skies with sell-out crowds for the first time in years.

The event at RAF Fairford is the largest of its kind in the world and is expected to attract 130,000 visitors.

Due to the hot weather, organisers have urged people to bring sunscreen, hats and water with them.

Highlights include the brand new Airbus A380, the world's largest commercial aircraft.

Tickets are still available for tomorrow but organisers have said none are available to buy at the gates.
