Spring Air Show

Celebrating Women in Aviation

Sunday 22 May

Women have always played an integral role in the development of aviation, from the

pioneering days of early flight to todayís sophisticated air power. The Spring Air Show

celebrates the achievements of women in aviation ñ from technological development to daring

aerial aptitude.


The Duxford Air Show

75th anniversary of the Spitfire

Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 September

Enjoy the sight and sound of the celebrated British single-seat fighter aircraft in the year that

marks the 75th anniversary of the Spitfireís inaugural flight. The Spitfire was first seen by the

public at the RAF Hendon Air Pageant in 1936 and only a few years later formed the

backbone of RAF Fighter Command. IWM Duxford, the spiritual home of the Spitfire,

celebrates the aircraftís power and panache in a spectacular air display.


Autumn Air Show

Remembering the Korean War

Sunday 16 October

The Korean War was the first major conflict in which jet aircraft sought air superiority

alongside the final-generation propeller-driven piston fighters. The Autumn Air Show pays

homage to this uniquely international air battle, characterised by the contrast between the

highly-developed piston engine and the first generation of jet aircraft.
