This story is over

The 2014 RAF Waddington International Air Show welcomed more than 70,000 visitors on the first day of the event on July 5.

Although a wet start, the weather has brightened leading to huge crowds enjoying the Air Show. More than 160 aircraft were on display.

Visitors to the Airshow on Sunday should be aware that entry is by an advance purchased ticket only.

Tickets will not be available for purchase on the gate, so if you are not in possession of a ticket you will not be able to gain entry.

The 2015 Waddington Air Show has been cancelled due to £34 million runway works at the base beginning in September for 59 weeks.
