The first day of Farnborough Air Show's public display events is under way.

Making one of the first appearances of the day was the Airbus A380, a double-decker plane with four engines.

Taking off at 12.30pm, the plane showcased its flying capabilities to the crowds.

The Farnborough Air Show has been at Farnborough Airport since Monday July 11, with a trade show running from Monday to Thursday.

On Friday, British astronaut Tim Peake attended Futures Day, which aims to encourage school pupils in to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects.
