Excitement of Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show 2017

Unforgettable air show

The roar of the Rolls-Royce Merlin engines over the sights and sounds of our exciting showground, including our Home Front Second World War themed village, makes this event the Great British day out of 2018. 

Capturing the spirit of the era, we will assemble one of the biggest collections of historic aircraft seen in the UK since the Second World War. The skies above IWM Duxford will be filled with majestic flight as this important airfield, steeped in history, is transformed with re-enactors, 1940s dances, events and activities for all.

Visit our Meet the Authors tent with talks, signings and Q&As from well known, respected writers and countdown to an unforgettable hearts and minds flying display you'll not soon forget.

Immersive Showground

Immersive Showground

Our theatrical showground will match the drama above, paying homage to the men and women who served during the Battle of Britain and celebrating the history and heritage of RAF Duxford, now 100 years old.

But we will also be looking to the future. As a proud official partner of RAF100, we'll also be celebrating the centenary of the Royal Air Force. This will add not only the commemoration of the RAF’s history to our historic weekend, but an exciting look into the future of the RAF with some of the most modern aircraft in service making an appearance.
