Organisers have also been cheered by the response to a special event being held next month to boost the air display budget.

Entertainer Kenny Cantor is organising a dinner dance and cabaret at the Victoria Hotel, Lowestoft, on Saturday, March 14.

Tickets are £27.50 and can be obtained by calling Paul Bayfield on 01502 587027 or emailing paul@lowestoft airfestival.co.uk

Another way of showing support for the festival is by joining the exclusive Friends organisation, which features special rewards such as certificates, badges and a souvenir programme, as well as free entry in a monthly competition.

Membership costs £12 for individuals and £25 for families of up to two adults and two children.
