Immerse Yourself in Summer 1940

Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show 2021 dates

Immerse Yourself in Summer 1940

Step back in time for an event to remember at the Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show.

 This September, immerse yourself in summer 1940, when the Spitfire ruled the skies and brought hope to the British Isles, at the airfield that made history. Presented by IWM Duxford, this former RAF site played a central role in some of the most dramatic days in 20th century history - serving as a base for many of the Spitfire and Hurricane pilots during the Second World War.
