Members of Italian airborne aerobatic unit Fracca Tricolori were spotted flying over Dublin City Centre, as they performed a final dry run ahead of this weekend's showcase.

The team will be taking part in the Bray Air Display - now in its 11th year - which takes place tomorrow and Sunday.

Other standout air force units taking part over the weekend include the Royal Air Force's Red Arrows and the Breitling Wingwalkers.

This year's show will also see a total of 27 jets and 46 aircraft take to the sky in what is anticipated to be a spectacular display.

Last year, an estimated 90,000 spectators turned up - and if this week's good weather can hold out, there is a possibility of that being trumped again.

The show is anticipated to be the biggest air display in Europe for 2016.

Anyone going to the show have been asked to arrive by noon each day and to avail of public transport, by the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA), who are the main sponsors for the event this year.

Wicklow County Council and Bray.ie are also supporting the show.
