Preparations are running smoothly ahead of the first display at the Great Yarmouth Air Show.

David Marsh, director of the bid and a senior show organiser, said: “I am very pleased to say everything is absolutely going hunky dory.

“We had 28 people at the briefing table this morning and everyone got asked and everyone came back with very positive reports.

“The only minor problem was a car parking in the wrong spot.

“All the displays are going exactly as planned. The conditions are perfect.

“The park and ride has picked up nicely and the buses are going well. There are no traffic issues as far as I am aware of.”

When asked why people should come to the show Mr Marsh said: “Air shows are the most popular shows in the world because it is such a spectacle and easy to see. You are not crammed into a theatre or stuck behind a pillar.

“Here you are sitting on Great Yarmouth beach enjoying the great facilities Great Yarmouth has to offer and there is the show up in the sky for you.”
