It was a tale of contrasting days at the Elvington Model Air Show as the weather played its part.

The first day, Saturday, was a spectacular success with a Vulcan displaying for the first time and huge crowds.

One hundred and twenty modellers showed off their work and skill on the two miles of runway at Elvington Airfield.

But at 11am yesterday the rain was so bad, organisers decided to cancel the second day completely.

Dave Johnson, chairman of the large model aircraft association, said as he packed up early: "Saturday was one of the best days attended ever. Everyone had see the forecast and decided to go then. It was fantastic. We were very, very disappointed to cancel today."

The weather meant the planned flypast by the Red Arrows was cancelled as well.

The show will be back next year for the fifth year.
