Two people, a 40-year-old man and 37-year-old woman, were arrested in connection with the incident and have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
Police are appealing to witnesses who were at the air show.
Pc Steve Freer said: “There were plenty of people in the area yesterday visiting the show so I am confident that there are lots of witnesses out there who can help us with our inquiries.
“Although we have two people arrested we are still carrying out enquiries and I would urge anyone with information about the incident to call us.
“Most people will remember being at the show yesterday and I’m sure they would remember witnessing the incident. I would ask that those witnesses call us while the memories are still fresh in their heads.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Pc Steve Freer on 101
