Ulster’s largest airshow is ready for take-off on Saturday afternoon with displays from the Red Arrows and an ultra-modern Typhoon attack jet.

The sights and sounds of the Battle of Britain will also feature in the skies above Portrush as the historic Spitfire, Lancaster and Hurricane trio of planes make an appearance at Airwaves.

The Battle of Britain Memorial trio will be joined by other historic aircraft, including a Cold War-era Soviet jet fighter, the MiG-15 UTI Midget.

The event takes place on Saturday and Sunday with a pyrotechnical display set to wow crowds in nearby Portstewart on Saturday evening and live music and street entertainment ongoing throughout the two-day event.

Traffic diversions will be in place as huge crowds descend on the seaside town.
