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.
