ON THIS day ten years ago The Argus went to the Airbourne airshow in Eastbourne to check out some amazing planes. We caught up with a star Albion defender who was coaching youngsters and met the team offering cooking sessions to older people

Airbourne 2009 drew thousands of fans to Eastbourne

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight was a highlight

And The Red Arrows thrilled the crowds

Here is Isaac Scott with Sgt Ivor Jones of the 5131 Bomb Disposal at RAF Wittering

Next up young football fan Jimmy Collingbourne, eight, put in a stiff tackle on Brighton and Hove Albion player Adam Virgo during a youth football training day at Hove Park School

Adam was putting these youngsters through their paces and giving something back to the community

And finally Ayub Ahmed and Sayyeb Mohammed Shojaeian took part in the Old Spice cookery club for older men at Portslade Community Centre
