Plans have been officially unveiled by Fareham Borough Council, which hopes to put on an 'incredible' event on June 8 and 9.

From Solent Airport, the Great War Display Team will take to the skies over Fareham in replica First World War aircraft and the Round Canopy Display Team will be doing a parachute display.

They will be followed by a fly-past from a Spitfire G-Spit, which will then join a P-51 Mustang for a static display.
