The annual Festival of Flight took place in Newcastle on Saturday.

Thousands of people watched the air display over Slieve Donard in the Co Down town.

A parachute display team from the RAF landed on the beach and the iconic Vulcan staged a fly-past.

Last year, over one hundred thousand people watched the show and organisers believe this year's event has been just as successful.

Went to it two years ago and saw the red arrows display which was superb.

As with so many events in NI, there is minimal advertising in advance, and then news coverage advertising the event only after the fact.

At least this event went ahead and SF couldn't ruin it unlike the one at the Maze...
