Legends arrived at 11:45, and there was only light traffic, and last year i got to the September show at 1:00 and yet again there was not much traffic. They seem to be pretty good at keeping the traffic moving at Duxford.

The shuttle bus from Trumpington is worth getting if you can manage with not having a car to drag everything around. It saves on the parking charge and means you are out quickly. The issue from Leicester could be the A14 from Huntingdon as there are major roadworks at present.

I understand the tank bank is shut at Legends to allow a closer display line, so what is this show going to be like in comparison?
How was the May show this year in terms of the distance? Looking at people's pictures, it didn't seem too bad.

Thanks!

The tank bank is closed for all Duxford shows now, not just legends, so the last september show had the same display distance as Legends.

The A14 roadworks are really no bother, just a bit of 40mph average speed check that normally only adds about 5 minutes on the journey most weekends. Gets a bit snarled up weekdays but then, it is the A14 :lol: Just check make sure that it's not closed overnight as they have been doing that occasionally.
