By Luke May

Normal flying is expected to resume today after strong winds grounded planes at a military show.

No planes left the ground at Headcorn Aerodrome's Combined Ops Miltary Air show yesterday as winds battered most of the county.

Organisers are hoping a normal flying schedule will return today.

A spokesman from the aerodrome said: "It will depend on the weather and what time the planes are scheduled to fly."

A statement on its Facebook page reads: "The published flying schedule below all is set to go as planned for today’s air."

Spitfires, Hurricanes and a parachute display team are set to fill the skies between 11am and 5pm.

On the ground there are tanks, Jeeps and hundreds of other military vehicles for visitors to see.
