IWM Duxford has announced that tickets for The American Air Show (Bank Holiday weekend Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 May) and for the Flying Legends Air Show (Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 July) are now on sale.
The American Air Show, Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 May
To commemorate the reopening of the newly-transformed American Air Museum*, The American Air Show at IWM Duxford tells the story of American and British collaboration in war.
Dynamic flying displays combine with evocative living history and veterans’ voices to show the impact of the American forces on Duxford and the eastern region in the First and Second World Wars, a relationship which developed into the Cold War and the present day.
The Flying Legends Air Show is famous the world over for its presentations of historic piston-engined aircraft in rare combinations and remarkable flying displays.
The flying display promises an unmissable fusion of power, sound, excitement and nostalgia as piston-engined aircraft from across the globe perform their breathtaking flights over IWM Duxford’s historic airfield.
The balbo, a massed-formation finale featuring many of the aircraft which have taken part in the flying display, is unique to the Flying Legends Air Show and a world-renowned spectacle.
Complementing the ‘wow’ factor in the air is the authentic 1940s atmosphere that can be experienced across the museum and in the Vintage Village. Sit back in our deckchair seating area to enjoy the sounds of the 1940s courtesy of The Manhattan Dolls from New York, take the opportunity to have a photograph sitting in a replica Spitfire, enjoy the antics of Laurel and Hardy and take on a vintage look with a 1940s makeover.
The Flying Legends Air Show is organised and produced by The Fighter Collection. For further information visit www.flyinglegends.com
Tickets for The American Air Show and the Flying Legends Air Show must be booked in advance. No on the day tickets are available.
Details for IWM Duxford’s September air show (Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September) will be announced in late spring.
*March 2016 will see the reopening of IWM Duxford’s American Air Museum, after a major transformation and redevelopment.
