The upcoming air show could be your chance to make a grand gesture of love by dedicating a giant smoky heart in the sky.

As part of their routine, the Wildcat Aerobatics team’s biplane duo will trace the token of love which, for the first time, they are inviting the public to dedicate to someone special.

The dedication could be a romantic gesture, a heartfelt thanks or a loving memorial and only one submission will be chosen.

To be in with a chance, entrants must explain who the emblem should be dedicated to and why, with emphasis on any Great Yarmouth connections.

The winning entry will get a special mention in the commentary during the Wildcats display on Saturday, June 16.

To enter visit, the air show Facebook page and comment on the competition post.

Entries close at midnight on June 13 and the winner will be notified by direct message.
