Airshows

2021 will see two Air Shows take place at IWM Duxford over weekends in July and September. These will include entertaining ground content and of course, our signature air displays. Our focus will be on the safety of visitors, staff and volunteers, adapting and responding to the changing environment as required.

Flying Days

2021 will see the introduction of ten Flying Days which will run on various dates from April to October. From D-Day to commemorating the valiant efforts of RAF Duxford’s Squadron 19, each of these Flying Days will be themed and will allow visitors the chance to explore our museum and pop up displays and experiences, before enjoying hours of flying action in the skies.

Despite popular belief, I don't spend every day at Duxford although getting my bus pass this week, It'll be cheaper getting there now. :wink:

I'll just have to use those two days productively drawing instead of photographing aeroplanes at Duxford. https://www.facebook.com/bamavart :grin:

I'll be at the September show, with Duxford Air Festival being the weekend after RIAT in July I don't think I could make 2 journeys to England from NI on successive weekends
