Tickets are on sale now at a very low price of just £12 for an adult (16 or older), £8 for a senior (65+) or £4 for a child (5-15)

Our preview of the show, including a flying list is here.

28th - 29th May

Show's Facebook

The theme of this year's Duxford Spring airshow reflects the opening of the transformed American Air Museum and tells of the special relationship between America and Britain through historic and contemporary jet aircraft. As well as flying, there will be living history re-enactments, sounds of the eras and the voices of Americans who lived and worked at RAF Duxford from the First World War to the Cold War.
