It wasn't all about all things maritime at the Tall Ships Festival.

The Ulster Aviation Society were on site with a replica Spitfire - sponsored by the Belfast Telegraph.

Chairman Ray Burrows explained that it was much too good an opportunity to miss to spread word about the society and to raise funds.

"The Society was founded in 1968 and we currently have around 450 members. We are an educational charity and I'm pleased to say we are now getting more and more schools coming along to visit our facility and more volunteers giving up their time to work on the aircraft," he explained.
