Thousands of airshow visitors have been remembering a pilot who died when his plane crashed at the event last year.

Hurricane display pilot Brian Brown 49, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, was killed during a mock Word War II dogfight at Shoreham Airshow.

A similar display on Saturday was dedicated to Mr Brown and a memorial was unveiled near the terminal building at the West Sussex airfield.

Up to 60,000 people are expected to attend the two-day airshow.

Mr Brown died on 15 September when the Hurricane crashed in countryside near the airfield.

The airshow, which is staged to raise money for the Royal Air Force Association, is in its 19th year.

So far it has raised 1.25m for the organisations, which help RAF veterans from World War II to the present day.
