SUFFOLK was treated to a spectacular sight today as the Red Arrows flew over the county on their way to London to mark the 90th anniversary of the Royal Air Force (RAF).

Evening Star photographers captured these shots as the aerobatics team soared over Ipswich in formation with four Typhoons.

When they reached London, the planes flew over the River Thames, past Canary Wharf and the Tate Modern, and on to the London Eye.

North London's RAF Museum later hosted a banquet for the Duke of Edinburgh and Air Force chiefs.

The RAF was formed when the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service merged on April 1, 1918.
