Duxford Shows: 2020

Fri 25 Oct 2019, 8:52 am

Same themes. Air Festival & Flying Legends dates not yet announced, although a fair assumption can be made as to when they'll be!

Battle of Britain Airshow will be the 19th & 20th September.

Where is the September show confirmed? Don't see it on their website nor got an email.

Hopefully the May show is slightly more inspiring next year.

Received an e-mail from IWM London advertising the air show dates.

Step back in time for an extra-special air show as we commemorate 75 years since the Battle of Britain on 19-20 Sept.


1940 to 2020 = 75 years.?

They are using British Airways' history calculator.

Eagle-eyed readers of our eNews may have noticed a typo in the eNews sent out last night.

In the eNews we referred to 2020 as being the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Of course, 2020 is in fact the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. IWM Duxford will be marking this important anniversary next year, culminating in September’s Battle of Britain Air Show.

We will endeavour to ensure that any eNews in future are error free before they arrive in your inbox.

Any idea on ticket prices this year? Not seen the prices advertised. I guess it's going to be a find out on Tuesday when they go on general release type thing.

Why should everyone know it FB? Or is it just a smug air of superiority? Perhaps the Venezuelans or Argentinians reading the forum may have a completely different take on the importance of a centenary next year? Are we expecting the awful autogyro thing to turn up at every airshow, someone to fly an aircraft of a ship or just celebrate the first RAF pageant? :dunno:

No weekend tickets anymore then? I liked the extra discount for committing to both days.

Re: Duxford Shows: 2020

No, none this year. I asked why when tickets came out and I was told due to 'issues' last year with the barcodes of weekend tickets.

Of course!

The Air Navigation Act of 1920 was granted assent on 2 December 1920, gazetted on 11 February 1921, came into force on 28 March 1921 and became law on 28 June 1921. Regulations under the Act provided for the registration of aircraft, licensing of aerodromes, licensing of personnel, periodic inspection and maintenance of aircraft, and rules of the air.

I expect all airshows will be falling over themselves to use this as a theme.

Just went to buy my premium member tickets and was really disappointed to find this change. What was a relatively cheap weekend has now become quite expensive! Great catch with the Czechs, but this has slightly taken the edge off!
