The De Havilland Vampire aircraft appeared at last years event and put on a thrilling display with their top speeds of 548mph.

Team Raven will again be returning to Clacton, having flown on both days in 2015.

The formation aerobatic display team use Vans RV self-built lightweight aircraft, which have been modified with smoke systems.

Gerald Cooper, who has been flying competitively for the past 17 seasons, has numerous British titles under his belt and last flew high above the town in 2013.

He attends many air sports competitions and airshows around the world with his Xtreme Air and his abilities stem from his in-depth engineering knowledge coupled with thousands of hours of piloting experience.

It promises to be a strong programme once again and I cannot wait for the event which will pull in audiences from far and wide, she said.

We still have plenty more to unveil including the aircraft for the night flying as well as a few other surprises.

The trio joins the popular Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, made up of the Lancaster and two Spitfires, who are also lined-up for both days.
