RAF Northolt played host to a day of family fun and entertainment on Saturday (July 22) with crowds enjoying everything from a Spitfire flypast to robot wars and everything in between.
Both military and non-military groups entertained crowds with everything from line dancing, BMX stunt displays and school choir performances.
Local charities were present and of course the event was also all about showing the locals what goes on inside the base.
Norfest project coordinator Wing Commander Gaz Littlechild told getwestlondon: "We deliberately wanted to make it for the community and about the community."
He added: "The support we get from the three local boroughs is absolutely immense and the best way we can pay that back is by inviting them here behind the wire at RAF Northolt, show them what we do, show them how we do it so that they can understand what we do day to day that they're so supportive of."
Those attending were invited on board a number of still aircraft ranging from a Chinook to a brand new Airbus A400M Atlas.
Despite the weather, all eyes turned to the skies as ticket holders were also treated to a battle of Britain memorial flight Spitfire flypast.
And if you thought RAF Northolt was all about planes then you would be mistaken, the base is home to a wide range of units.
Ground events organiser, Flying Officer Rebecca Causer-Smith, told getwestlondon: "We have 33 lodger units here. We have the bomb disposal, we've got the British Forces Post Office, we've got the band here, the RAF and the Regiment Band, we've got The Queen's Colour Squadron."
These 33 military and government units provide direct support to 32 Squadron to deliver their mission of supporting senior government and military personnel.
The busy military base holds an event every year but it is the first time is has been branded as Norfest and it appears it may not be the last.
Wing Commander Gaz Littlechild said: "The success of today in being focused on the community, about the community will mean that we will likely do this in the future every couple of years."
