The RAF Langham reunion and dome heritage day, on Saturday, June 1, also featured an aerobatic display with the Extra 260 flown by Steve Carver.

A spokesman for the organisers, the Friends of Langham Dome charity, said: "The event remembered all who served at RAF Langham during the Second World War and the Cold War, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice in operations from the station.

"Those who trained in the dome using the then secret technology of the anti-aircraft gunnery trainer were also remembered."

People also celebrated the dome's five successful years as north Norfolk's military visitor attraction.
