Duxford says “Kids go free”

Imperial War Museum (IWM) Duxford has published its programme for the 2018 air show season with much emphasis on the RAF Centenary.
It all starts with the Duxford Air Festival (May Bank Holiday weekend 26/27 May).  The event will be a feast of action-packed flying full of speed, noise, power and thrills.  Confirmed aircraft include the Tiger Nine formation team of nine 1930s Tiger Moth biplanes and the AeroSuperBatics WingWalkers, the world’s only aerobatic formation wing-walking team.

The Flying Legends Air Show (Weekend 14/15 July) is all about nostalgia while the Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show (Weekend 22/23 September) is an official partner for the Royal Air Force centenary, celebrating its famous aircraft, past and present.

Across the museum, visitors can enjoy a wide range of events and activities. The Family Flight Challenge shows that it takes more than a pilot to make an aircraft fly: from scientists and engineers to designers and mechanics. You might meet real inventors and adventurers or working in a team to make something fly.  In the 'Meet the Authors' marquee writers will discuss their current books and take questions from the audience.

Children go free when an adult purchases a ticket for the Duxford Air Festival or the Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show.  Tickets for all air shows must be booked in advance.
