Briefly... I belong to the Church of Airplane. I visit every church I can (i.e. airplane museums.) "Duxford" is a pilgrimage site. Some do this once in their lives...others must do it monthly...those who never do are to be pitied. That is all.

I brought my brother in law who was over from Poland for a visit - with it being midweek we missed the queues and there were spitfires and other planes flying the aircraft exhibits are fantastic

Hi. There are a number of benches scattered around the airfield but on air show days trying to get a seat on these can be very hard. I would highly recommend bringing your own seats if you can. I hope you enjoy your... More
