Old Buckenham Airshow displays are expected to be restricted due to rain affecting flying conditions.

The second day of the airshow will have reduced displays as further rain is expected throughout the day.

On Saturday, July 28 clear skies gave show goers a perfect view of a Second World War bomber B17 and a Hawker Hurricane.

But today the flight will be limited due to the poor conditions.

Speaking yesterday organiser Matt Wilkins said: “We have done airshows in the wet before.

“We have a P51 Mustang which is an American icon from World War Two as well as a Hawker Hurricane, one of the two British great fighters from the War.

“On Sunday [today] not only will we have the Hurricane, we will of course have the Spitfire as well.”
