Aviation enthusiasts and families attended this year's Duxford Summer Air Show at the Cambridgeshire airfield on Saturday and Sunday.
Among the historic aircraft to take to the skies over the weekend were much-loved Flying Fortress 'Sally B', the last remaining airworthy B-17 in Europe, and the 'NHS' Supermarine Spitfire.
Attendees also witnessed a flypast of the famous Flying Fortress in formation with The Blades aerobatics team.
The first day's aviation action saw a flypast by the iconic Red Arrows, while the Stichting Fokker Four S-11 Instructors from the Netherlands performed a display for Duxford's visitors.
Saturday's flying programme at the IWM site was affected by the weather, with a number of cancellations, and there was a "minor incident" on the Duxford runway the following day.
On Sunday morning, a de Havilland Dragon Rapide tipped onto its nose as it landed at the historic Cambridgeshire airfield.
No one was injured, and the air show continued as planned in the afternoon.
