Television presenters Angellica Bell and Michael Underwood will help present this year's Farnborough Air Show to families attending the display.

With so much to see at this year's show, organisers have hired the popular duo - who used to front children's television on the BBC - to help keep families entertained from during the two-day event on Saturday July 19 and Sunday July 20.

Farnborough International Limited chief executive Shaun Ormrod said: "These are great people to be able to interpret things."

As the show attempts to target more casual plane enthusiasts, organisers are looking at new ways to keep them engaged throughout the weekend.

"Simply putting planes in the air and saying 'isn't that fantastic' is no longer enough," added Mr Ormrod. "We need to raise our game."

Where to get tickets for Farnborough Airshow 2014 

One way will be through an app which will be available to visitors and cars on display while organisers have also promised "more shopping opportunities for those who want to see more than just aircraft".

A history of aviation exhibition will also be on display.

For motoring enthusiasts, there will be a chance to cheer on a Morgan three-wheeler as it races a Spitfire down the runway.
