The show, which took place on Saturday and Sunday, saw spectacular manoeuvres in the sky and fly-pasts by more than 100 planes from 22 countries, Poland’s PAP news agency reported.

Taking part were air display teams from nations including Spain, Italy, Germany, Turkey, Croatia and Pakistan.

The Radom air show is the largest event of its kind in Poland. On Saturday alone, it drew a crowd of more than 80,000, according to PAP.

The air show was first held in the western Polish city of Poznań in 1991. Since 2000 it has been held at an airport in Radom.

This year's event was special because it coincided with commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the Polish air force and the centennial of the restoration of national independence, Defence Minister Mariusz Błaszczak said as he opened the show on Saturday.
