Are you a keen photographer with a love of aviation?

Enjoy the opportunity to photograph 12 Spitfires up close with The Spitfire Special, the third event in our 'Duxford In a Different Light' series, a photography night-shoot dedicated to the most iconic aircraft in British aviation history.  

Using innovative lighting techniques, the aircraft in our Spitfire: Evolution of an Icon exhibition, each representing different stages of the Spitfire’s development, will be illuminated to create evocative opportunities for your photographs.

The event will take place in Duxford’s AirSpace building. 

As well as our fantastic array of Spitfires, the aircraft and exhibits inside the main display space will also be lit up to allow you to capture some of Duxford’s incredible collection of British and Commonwealth aircraft in a different light.
