American Air Show, Duxford
28th - 29th May

Show's Facebook

The theme of this year's Duxford Spring airshow reflected the opening of the transformed American Air Museum and told of the special relationship between America and Britain through historic and contemporary jet aircraft.

The show was noticeable for its new parking charge of £5 per vehicle; new rule restricting windbreaks and tents on the crowdline; new flying display lines and disappointingly low visitor numbers, especially on Saturday.

Flying highlights were the brutish display by the Typhoon; the Mustang : Buchon tailchase - a variation on the Spitfire - Hurricane norm and, surprisingly, the Harvard / T6 displays.

Our summary of the show and flying list is here.

Shuttleworth Season Premiere Airshow
8th May 2016

Click to go to show's facebook pageShow's Twitter feed

The first Shuttleworth Collection airshow of the season was a celebration of vintage flying in glorious sunshine. Unfortunately, a strong cross-wind prevented the Edwardians, racers and a few others flying and a stray Gazelle helicopter spoiled the Red Arrows first public display of the season. Nevertheless, excellent flying by resident and visiting aircraft, vehicle parade and live music made for a first class family occasion.

Our overview of the show, including he planned flying list, is here
