Boeing's 787 twinjet has touched down at the Farnborough Air Show, marking the aircraft's first appearance in the UK.

It headed in over north Wales, tracking south towards Oxford, and circled at around 9,000ft to the west of Farnborough before descending to conduct a flypast from the east.

The Rolls-Royce Trent 1000-powered aircraft, ZA003, then made a second approach and touched down, coming to a rapid stop on the runway.
