A RECORD number of small aircraft from far and wide landed on Lundy as part of the island's annual air day on Sunday.
Seventy-two aeroplanes and micro lights from as far a-field as Lincoln, Leicester and Coventry descended upon a small runway on the top of the island - once the grass had been cut and sheep moved from the landing strip!
Lundy General Manager, Derek Green said: "We were delighted by the attendance of so many aeroplanes and pilots. To have 72 aircraft landing in one day is a record for the island and a fantastic sight to see."
"My thanks to Peter White, the Devon Strut co coordinator, and his team who helped to organise the rally, and to the island fire team for providing ground support.
