Woodspring Model Air Show took place on Saturday and Sunday in Claverham, and saw spectators enjoy a thrilling sight of remote-controlled planes taking to the sky.

This year's event was a milestone one for Woodspring Wings and it marked its 30th anniversary.

Andy Johnson's one-tenth model of the world's most famous jet - Concorde - was arguably the biggest draw of the weekend.

But a Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, model Vulcan Bomber and replica Red Arrows jets meant there was a lot to see and enjoy across both days.

The event was held at Claverham Airfield and fireworks were set off at the end of the festival.

Trade stalls and food carts managed to do a roaring trade over the weekend as well.
