The organisers of the Great Yarmouth Air Show have announced that next year’s show could see big changes to the format.

A post on the air show’s Facebook page suggests the format of this year’s inaugural event which saw planes fly over the town on two consecutive days on June 16 and 17, will be in line for a change.

The post on Facebook, said: “A series of flying displays are being considered by our organisers, The Greater Yarmouth Tourism and Business Improvement Area, (GYTABIA) for next year rather than over just one weekend.

“We’ve learnt a huge amount from this year’s air show and we’re looking forward to future events.”

The event saw an estimated 175,000 people attend.
