IWM Duxford in Cambridgeshire, part of Imperial War Museums, will once again host the uniquely thrilling spectacle of the Duxford Air Festival at the end of May.
The event continues a century-long tradition, with air shows reportedly celebrated as the second-biggest participation event behind football matches during the 20th century, for young and old alike.
During its time, the Imperial War Museum in Duxford has each year welcomed tens of thousands of fans through the gates for their programme of action-packed air shows, not least the two-day Duxford Air Festival.
The Duxford Air Festival officially launched in 2017, building on a century of history and excitement. Representing the past 100 years, it brought – and continues to bring – together the classic and the modern, innovation and technology.
At last year’s thrilling air spectacle the French Air Force’s Dassault Rafale tore up the skies, fans witnessed a closing display by Duxford’s very own Spitfire N3200, the return of La Patrouille de France of the Armée de l’Air, the RAF Chinook Display Team, and the jaw-dropping spectacle of the worlds only aerobatic formation wingwalking team.
The Duxford Air Festival is now set to return to the former RAF base and historical site from 25 – 26 May 2019, hosting more high-octane thrills, technological innovation and a festival spirit suitable for all.
