Highlights from the Midlands Air Festival, the first major airshow of the UK season. Headlined by the Red Arrows, it was the first chance to see their new 7-ship display routine. Rarities in the flying programme included the Vampire T.11, OV-10B Bronco and Lancaster B.1, while formation aerobatics came from Midlands Air Festival favourites Tiger 9, Team Raven and Strikemaster Display UK. The RAF Falcons were another star of the show, and we also take a quick look at the Nightfire pyrotechnic air displays.
