Air shows 2013 are announced
IWM Duxford has announced its air show season for 2013. The Spring Air Show on Sunday, May 26 is named: Remembering the Mighty Eighth, which brings together contemporary and historic aircraft for a day of flying. This year, the Spring Air Show commemorates the 70th anniversary of the United States Army Air Force arriving at RAF Duxford in April 1943.
We’ll look at the impact of the American Forces on the course of
the Second World War in Europe and their cultural influence on the East Anglian community. Historic US warbirds will take to the skies as we remember the time when the stars and stripes flew at RAF Duxford.
The Flying Legends Air Show will be staged over the weekend of Saturday 13 and Sunday, July 14. A worldwide following has ensured that the Flying Legends Air Show is the heritage air show event in the
aviation calendar. Each of the historic aircraft on display at the Flying Legends Air Show is a living tribute to the outstanding skills of the people who built, maintained and flew them and to the dedication of those who have brought these stunning aircraft back to life. The Flying Legends Air Show presents these iconic aircraft in a spectacular display that honours their
history and aerial achievements. The flying display promises an unmissable fusion of power, sound, excitement and nostalgia as a series of rare and unique piston-engined aircraft perform their
breathtaking flights over the historic airfield at IWM Duxford. The Early Bird offer does not apply to the Flying Legends Air Show.
