IT wasn't the trio of aerobatic thrills that organisers had worked so hard to bring to the crowds, but a scaled-down Falmouth Air Show went ahead on Wednesday evening.

The event was supposed to feature three teams as Falmouth Week aimed to replace the annual Red Arrows performance, with the country's top display team on a tour of North America, but the weather didn't play ball in the end.

The Blades and the AeroSuperBatic Wingwalkers both had to cancel their performances.

The weather meant that neither team was able to take off and fly to Falmouth.

On the bill were The Blades, AeroSuperBatic Wingwalkers and The Strikemaster Pair.

The Strikemaster Pair were still able to put on a show for the hardy crowds who had waited it out.

Organisers kept an eye on the conditions all day.

The Blades were the first to pull out at around 4pm, with a Falmouth Week spokesperson saying: "All three display teams are in three different locations and The Blades are not able to take off from their current location due to weather.

"We are working closely with the Strikemaster Pair and Wingwalkers to create an air show, albeit a shorter display than previously planned."

However the Wingwalkers cancelled at the last minute as visibility and wind were too poor for them to take off from Bodmin.

It was due to be the second time that The Blades had flown into Falmouth, following a display in 2012.

The event is part of Falmouth Week, which runs until Sunday.
