Interestingly the section has been removed from the website... So I hope my tickets are still valid :/ someone may have jumped the gun with putting the sales live.


Just tried to book but site kept saying " code does not exist"

Yeah, it wasn't meant to be public. Someone didn't tell google search which is where I found the link lol.

I really don't understand this mad scramble to buy tickets even before they officially go on sale. There're the same price and give exactly the same access as ones bought in a couple of months' time, and there are likely to be plenty to go around.

It's Duxford, not Glastonbury, people!

Not exactly true. There is 'Early Bird' tickets which are usually cheaper. Enclosures also sell out well before general admission tickets do.

Many also have to factor in flights & hotels to their costs so like to get them as soon as they are available. I always try to get mine as soon as they are on sale, more for my own peace of mind.

It makes a change from the usual wailing about advance tickets only... :smile:

I’m thinking about going for the gold enclosure- has anyone used it and what was it like?
Thanks, Rob

I used the Gold enclosure for my last few Legends, very handy: Good food (if you take the option), nice to have a base for your stuff if you go wandering. If you want to be near the front, then I’d suggest aiming on sitting in the centre of the enclosure, rather than left or right ends, over time some more inconsiderate people start standing in the corners of the enclosure, blocking your view.

Consider taking a small cushion for the chair!

Hadn't realised it was no longer with TFC.

Their fleet seems to be the smallest I can remember it at the moment.

The Horseman have legends on their schedule but not sure if that’s just down to the pilots being at Duxford or if they are doing their routine
