Thousands flock to the Cotswold Air Show
Forces sweetheart Hayley Westenra added a touch of glamour to this year's Cotswold Air Show.
The 23-year-old soprano, who became a modern day Dame Vera Lynn after singing for troops Iraq, made a flying visit to Kemble yesterday to support the work of the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.
The two day show took the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain as its theme.
The world-famous Red Arrows aerobatic display team wowed the thousands of visitors to the show with their daredevil manoeuvres in the Gloucestershire skies.

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight provided a sight which filled those below with nostalgia and national pride when a Spitfire, Hurricane and Dakota passed overhead.
There was also a chance to marvel at one of the world's most advanced aircraft in action, the Eurofighter Typhoon.
On the ground, visitors could inspect the giant C17 Globemaster and C130 Hercules as well as dozens of other military and civilian flying machines.
For Hayley, it was a chance to promote her forthcoming Battle Of Britain UK tour, which she'll perform with the Central Band of the RAF.
"I am a very lucky girl," she said. "I not only get to sing, I also get to come to awesome shows like this."
Air cadet Josh Newman, from Cheltenham, spent yesterday persuading visitors to donate to the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.
The 16-year-old is in the process of completing his GCSEs, and already has a firm idea of what he'd like to do in the future.
"I want to be a pilot," he said.
