Duxford Summer Air Show is presented by IWM Duxford, Europe’s largest air museum and historical airfield. 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. 

Although this year Duxford Summer Air Show is an outdoor event only, there's still plenty to see and experience before the flying takes off. For the most up-to-date information, follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
