RNAS Culdrose has thrown open its doors for Air Day.

Thousands are expected to watch displays by 40 aircraft, based on the theme "the front line."

That includes an appearance from the Red Arrows.

Commander Peter Munro Lott said it is good to be back after 2012: "Because of the Olympics, our commitments to the Olympics, we did take a break. We did deliver the flame, but we will come back bigger and better as promised.

"We recognise the unique place we have in west Cornwall, the employment we give to people and the role that everybody here plays in Cornwall."

Also being displayed on Wednesday, the Apache helicopters, flown upside down:



Lieutenant Commander Dave Bouyac flies the Hawk: "It's not just getting airborne for one hour, slinging your boots over your shoulder and going down the beach. There's a whole process of briefing, getting the weather and the operations of the day, planning your sortie; there's a good three or four hours at least on every flight that people may only see for half an hour to an hour."
