Preparations underway for last air show of 2006

Preparations are well underway for Duxford’s Autumn Air Show, the last major UK air show of the 2006 season. The show will take place on Sunday 8 October and feature a host of favourites from historic propeller-driven aircraft through to modern front-line jets.

The display has a distinctly French connection with the French national Aerobatic team the Patrouille de France headlining the show, supported by the French Curtiss Hawk 75 and two T-28 Fennecs. Other air show classics such as Spitfires, Mustangs and the B-17 Sally B, will also feature in the show, which has a special place in the Duxford calendar as the last chance each year to see all your air show favourites.

The whole of the Museum will also be open for visitors to enjoy with plenty to see including Duxford’s dramatic new £25 million AirSpace exhibition, The Battle of Britain and the evocative Forgotten War exhibitions, conservation work in progress and the stunning American Air Museum. There will also be over 80 trade stands selling all kinds of aviation and military-related merchandise.

Duxford is located just south of Cambridge at junction 10 of the M11. Gates open at 8.00 am and the flying begins at 1.30 pm. Tickets – Adults £22, Senior Citizens/Concessions £19, Children £10.
