The roar of the Spitfire could be heard over Norwich city centre as people turned out at midday to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain on Monday, 13 September 2010. Photos by Phil Daley & David Keller.
The parade was led by The Band of the Royal Air Force Regiment who played incidental music before the parade by RAF Marham.
Airmen from RAF Marham marched along to the front of City Hall where the procession would stop and take salute.
The airmen were inspected by the Lord Mayor Mr Tom Dylan and Sqn Ldr Amanda Martin-Smith, who was the first female officer to command the parade in Norwich in 2009.
Later in the evening at County Hall in Norwich, RAF Honington took the salute during a Battle of Britain parade and crowds witnessed another memorial flight.
Workers refurbishing Norwich's Memorial Gardens opposite City Hall watched the airmen line up. It is hoped that the gardens will be completed by Remembrance Day in 2010.
The RAF flag flies high over City Hall as the crowds below paid their respects to "The Few" - the RAF pilots who defended the nation against the German Luftwaffe in World War II.
Fifteen minutes prior to the Norwich flypast, crowds gathered for a memorial service in King's Lynn and they watched in awe as the lone Spitfire soared over the memorial in Tower Gardens.
Around 100 people were treated to the Spitfire flypast in King's Lynn as it banked round to fly over Tower Gardens around half a dozen times.
A memorial service was held to pay respects to the Norfolk airmen who lost their lives, led by Wg. Cdr. V A Stapley and Canon Chris Ivory.
Airmen from RAF Marham were again in attendance at the service as hymns were sung and a minutes silence was held to remember those that lost their lives during the Battle of Britain.
Other representatives at the service included Norfolk Constabulary, Norfolk Fire Service and the Royal British Legion.
Around a dozen wreaths were laid at the cenotaph in Tower Gardens to honour Britain's airmen.
To mark the occasion, a new floral display was created in the gardens to honour the 70 years since the Battle of Britain.
Hats were taken off during the one minute silence, which was echoed by thousands of people across the county during the day.
Standard bearers lowered their flags for the silence. RAF Marham airmen recently paraded their freedom of the borough in June.
