Some 90,000 people are expected to turn out for the last day of this weekend’s Bray Air Display, according to the event's organisers.

Tens of thousands descended on the Wicklow town yesterday for the first day of the free show.

The event kicks off this afternoon with a 2pm performance by the famous Red Arrows.

The Royal Air Force display team can reach speeds of just over 600 miles per hour with its current fleet of aircraft.

Also flying today are the Black Knights, the Irish Defence Forces’ parachuters; the Breitling Wingwalkers, the world’s only formation aerobatic team; and Aer Lingus 321, the airline's new passenger aircraft.

The highlights yesterday included a display by the Irish Air Corps' PC9:

Spectators were also treated to a colourful performance by Frecce Tricolori, Italy's aerobatic demonstration team:

"We’re looking forward to another fantastic day of thrilling aerobatics from the very best in the world," said event director Se Pardy.

"Arrive early to make the most of the day – as well as the amazing aerobatics, there’s a whole host of activity on the ground with the fun fair in situ, as well as live music and a food and craft village.”
