Spectacular show over the Portrush skies

By Rebecca Black

Almost 200,000 people travelled to the north coast over the weekend for a spectacular show in the skies above.

The RAF's Red Arrows provided a stunning start to both days with their world famous formations, close-passes and dynamic loops, as well as a special red heart shaped symbol for the mesmerised crowds at Portrush's international airshow.

The Typhoon jet made a dramatic - and noisy - impact on both days with a thrilling show of power and sound and its collection of jaw-dropping manoeuvres, while the RNLI and Irish Coastguard put on a land and sea display.

And there was a poignant element to the event with a flypast by a Battle of Britain memorial trio of a Spitfire, Lancaster and Hurricane on Sunday ahead of a remembrance service and Poppy drop by a Huey helicopter.
