IT'S day two of the Bournemouth Air Festival 2014. Want to know what you can see today? then look no further for our rundown. 

If you like your flying displays to be fast and furious (not to mention loud!) then don't miss the Eurofighter Typhoon, which makes its appearance from 4pm onwards.

Also, the Royal Air Force Falcons parachute display team, ChinookSally-B Flying Fortress and Miss Demeanour are not to be missed. 

You can see the Red Arrows at 3pm today. There's more information on when they will be arriving and departing at Bournemouth Airport, plus details on today's meet and greet with the pilots here

The Typhoon will be flying at 2.20pm today instead of 4.20pm as previously advertised. 

Unfortunately the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and Dakota have been cancelled due to windy conditions.

What's a Rolls Royce Spitfire, some type of car? I think you will find that the Spitfire was made by Supermarine, the only thing Rolls Royce about it is its engine.

Just had the Red Arrows fly over my home. I am a great fan and admire their skills greatly but should they fly so low over large areas of housing?

Maybe next year they can get an Antonov An-225 to fly over? The 6 D-18 engines make plenty of noise, and it blocks out the sunlight with its 290ft wingspan as it flies overhead.
