Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Yes, it is a plane. And lots of them at that.

The 2016 Duxford Air Show had a whole host of historic and modern day fighter aircraft showing off and flying around the skies above The Imperial War Museum in Duxford, Cambridgeshire - much to the enjoyment of the crowds below.

Here's a taster of what was on show:
