The third Bournemouth Air Show began on Thursday 19 August. The Royal Marines opened the show with their beach assault, shown here parachuting onto the beach, in front of RFA Largs Bay.
One of the many air performances on Thursday were the Breitling Wingwalkers. Other displays included the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the Dutch F-16 fighter jet.
Also showing were the Royal Navy Black Cat Lynx helicopter displays. Later in the weekend, cloud would be too low for both helicopters to appear, with only one appearing briefly on Saturday. Both flew again on Sunday, but the display was abandoned.
On Saturday, the weather took a turn for the worse. Many of the air displays were grounded due to low cloud cover. Visitors, meanwhile, were prepared - many were equipped with flasks of hot drinks and rain coats.
Despite the wet and windy weather conditions, Bournemouth beach was still busy. Some people said they were "sympathetic" to the show's organisers because of the bad weather. The show takes a year to put together.
The show in 2009 attracted 1.3m visitors to the town over its four days. It's likely the total visitor numbers for 2010 will be less than that. Organisers say there were 250,000 visitors at the show on Saturday.
One of the few displays to go ahead on Saturday was a solo Black Cat. The low cloud cover forced the aircraft to perform on a "flat display" basis - so the audience can see it.
The weather was initially worse on the show's final day, Sunday. Fewer visitors appeared to be on the beach, and the rain was heavier. Many displays, including the Red Arrows, were cancelled, due to low cloud either over the beach, or at the airport.
The rain was persistent but, later on Sunday afternoon, the cloud cleared and a display from a Hawker Hunter fighter jet went ahead. Visitors, meanwhile, sheltered under their umbrellas.
As the festival ended, organisers said the show will be back next year. Seen here, the only performance by the Red Arrows at the show, on Friday afternoon.
