Duxford stars in BA ad
A STRIKING advertising campaign launched by British Airways has pushed IWM Duxford into the limelight.
The Crow Country site was used as a filming location and during the June shoot over 40 extras and a large film crew set up shop on the museum.
The advert shows Duxford Aviation Society’s Concorde cockpit and VC10, Classic Wings’ de Havilland Dragon Rapide and a number of IWM Duxford vehicles, including the Bedford truck on display, the refueller from Hangar 4: Battle of Britain and the BOAC cub and luggage
trolley from AirSpace.
A Douglas DC-3 Dakota was flown in from Norway especially for the occasion and several vintage vehicles were brought in from other collections to represent the appropriate historical periods.
