Gallery: More than 33,000 enjoy Duxford airshow
MORE than 30,000 visitors descended on Duxford at the weekend to see some of the country’s best pilots dazzle in iconic aircraft.
The Imperial War Museum Duxford’s show was held on Saturday and Sunday and saw acrobatic displays, vintage planes and fast jets.
Esther Blaine, head of public relations at the museum, said: “It was a fantastic weekend, the weather could not have been better and we flew on both days.
“There was something for everyone with fast jets, acrobatics and historic aircraft.
“The wind gave some challenges on Sunday and the programme had to be changed about but it was a brilliant day.”
