IWM Duxford will also host a number of new Battle of Britain events and activities over the coming months including bespoke tours and panel events.
Highlights include the Life and Death in the Battle of Britain walking tour with IWM historian Carl Warner, who will provide an insight into the psychological pressures young fighter pilots faced in the summer of 1940, and a panel discussion with author, historian and broadcaster James Holland.
You can develop your photography skills with the help of an internationally published aviation photographer during a full-day workshop.
