All eyes were on the Sunderland skies as crowds flocked Roker and Seaburn seafront  for the 28th Sunderland International Airshow.

The second day of the Airshow showcased aircraft displays, featuring the Falcons parachute display team, the OV-10 Bronco, the Battle of Britain Memorial featuring Spitfire planes and the Red Arrows.

Lance, 21, parachutist in the Falcons parachute display team, told SR News that this was 338 time he jumped out of a plane.

He said: “The scariest thing that’s happened to me in the sky was probably when I was doing CRW once, which is canopy formations, and my friend grabbed the wrong side of my canopy and it sort of collapsed and then reinflated. That made my heart go a little bit.  ”

The popular regional event will conclude today (July 24) and it will include more displays by the Blades, the Twister Duo, the Vortex 525 and a Mig 15.
