Crowds have been enjoying stunning weather and thrilling aerial displays in Llandudno as part of Armed Forces Day 2018.

Thousands of people packed the town's promenade and beach to catch a glimpse of flypasts by teams including the red arrows.

Cllr James Lusted, Conwy County Borough Council member for Llandrillo yn Rhos tweeted: "What an incredible privilege to have such a significant event in our county! Congratulations to all involved with the planning and creating such a success!

"And we much say a huge thank you to all #ArmedForces in our nation!"

Away from the seafront crowds converged on Bodafon Fields home to stalls and displays from the armed forces including military vehicles and aircraft.

Mostyn Estates Ltd allowed 100 acres of land to be used free of charge during the day believing events such as Armed Forces Day helped boost to the area’s economy and raise the resort’s profile both national and internationally ensuring the future success of Llandudno as one of the UK’s leading seaside resorts.

Edward Hiller said: “Mostyn Estates is looking forward to the heightened national profile that Armed Forces Day will give the town. Around 100 acres of estate land has been provided to assist in staging the day - including Bodafon Fields, which will be a focal point of the event as well as various fields on the edge of the town to provide Park and Ride facilities.

Mr Hiller added: “It is not just about financial support - it’s about utilising the full range of Estate assets and expertise that are at our disposal to help make things happen”.

“We are really pleased to have been able to work with Conwy County Borough Council to enable the event to take place in Llandudno. It is the high point of a journey that began by putting on the series of air shows that have helped to draw attention to the town’s natural attributes for hosting such events.”

In October, Mostyn Estates are again teaming up with the County Council to support Wales Rally GB.
