The Red Arrows performed an "amazing" display at the Midlands Air Festival after passing over Oxfordshire.

Arguably the most famous military planes flew through Banbury and Chipping Norton to RAF Brize Norton on Friday afternoon before heading back through the county to Warwickshire for the Midlands Air Festival.

Celebrating their 60th anniversary, the Red Arrows headed up the festival at Ragley Hall in Alcester on Saturday (June 1).

Mark Hopkins, who captured the display, said: "They were amazing. Particularly this year, now they are back to a full nine for the first time in a couple of years."
