Some legendary aircraft have been soaring in to the IWM Duxford airfield, ready for the Flying Legends Air Show this weekend.
The airshow is famous the world over for its unique presentations of historic piston-engined aircraft in rare combinations and remarkable flying displays.
This year visitors can see up to 45 glorious historic aircraft in over three hours of unsurpassed flying action, culminating each day in the Balbo massed flight finale.
On Tuesday the North American P-51 Mustang Berlin Express landed, following its completion of a historic transatlantic flight from the United States to IWM Duxford to take part in the show.
The aircraft completed a 5,470 mile journey from the US via Canada, Greenland, Iceland and Scotland before arriving on Cambridgeshire soil in the capable hands of pilot Lee Lauderback.
