Duxford Shows: 2019

Postby Abbo46 on Sun 02 Sep 2018, 2:18 pm

Not dates as of yet but, interesting to note next year is being branded as the venues 'biggest airshow season yet' on the IWM website.

Hoping they've dropped the 'Air Festival' theme.

Probably got something to do with the Daks over Normandy event in June?

Could be onto something there. Wouldn't be surprised if the theme for the May show was somehow related.

I'm really not sure what people are expecting from the Daks 'event'. It's not an airshow, and I wouldn't expect much, if any, flying. There will be a bunch of aeroplanes parked up, doing post-deployment maintenance after their transatlantic flights. The main event, and the parachute drops, will inevitably be in Normandy.

The chap at Cosby today, maning the Daks over Normandy stand, was saying there will be event tickets for Duxford, available around February. The possibility of paid flights was under discussion with the CAA.

On their website it says there will be some displays and possibly some pleasure flights. The Sunday they are arriving and the Wednesday they should be departing so there should be plenty of flying

An interesting proposition. What they are suggesting (an all-ticket, advance sales only event, with Flying displays and parachute drops) must be costing an absolute fortune to set up, with CAA permissions, insurance, closure of Duxford to casual visitors, etc. Either that, or what they are actually offering turns out to be something slightly different from that listed on their website.

Perhaps they should rename it 'Dakotas over Cambridggeshire'

No airshow season is ever going to be branded "About as good as last year" it's always going to be branded bigger and better.

I wouldn't expect too much of a change.

As some expected, no change. Same themes as the past two years.

Very tempted to do the Air Festival in May. Flying Legends is just too close to RIAT.

What is the grandstand like? Worth doing and does it have private toilets etc?
