A 56-PAGE souvenir programme, packed with information about the 13th Lowestoft Seafront Air Festival, goes on sale this weekend.
Costing �3.50, the same as last year, the programme includes a full guide to the flying displays on Thursday and Friday, July 23 and July 24, plus essential information on all aspects of the show.
With all main seafront car parks closed for both days and parking banned on nearby streets - where a strict tow-away policy will be enforced - the programme contains detailed advice for all car users intending to visit the event.
Exhibitions and attractions on Royal Green, the funfair and other seafront entertainment and news of the Thursday night fireworks spectacular are all highlighted.
With full colour pictures and fascinating facts about the 21 displays planned for each day, the programme also includes a special feature by flying display director Brian Lewis in which he explains why he puts Lowestoft at the top of his 100-long air show list.
There is also a special article by Brian Hunter, air festival director responsible for stewarding and volunteer support.

Mr Hunter points out that last year's event made �28,000 for local charities and he urges spectators to give a minimum donation of �2 to ensure that next year's festival goes ahead.
Organisers are grateful to businesses who have advertised in the programme and to Rotary Clubs who have offered help with selling the programmes and air show merchandise.
East Point Rotary Club is distributing the programme for sale at various outlets including local newsagents. A donation from the sales goes to charity.
Programmes can also be bought at The Journal office, in London Road North, and East Point Pavilion, on Royal Plain.
Free programmes, badges and certificates for everyone who applied to become a Friend of the Air Festival were posted this week.
