The first Spitfires flew from Duxford airfield, still in use today. Admire the infamous Spitfire Mk.Ia (N3200), shot down on its first and only operation from Duxford as it led the squadron on a patrol to cover the Dunkirk evacuation. This Spitfire was lost for 50 years before returning to IWM Duxford for restoration. A star of the 2017 film Dunkirk, it still calls IWM Duxford home and will be flying in the Battle of Britain Air Show*
Discover the 1940s Operation Room the nerve centre of Duxford’s Battle of Britain. From here the men and women who worked on the ground at Duxford directed the station’s pilots into combat.
