Duxford Flying Legends Air Show, yes, we were there and saw many legendary aircraft fly. Why is it called the Flying Legends, because all the planes are from the WW2 vintage and many responsible for helping win the War. Some of those famous planes that we saw flying today are as follows:
We did arrive early, 0900 but it did take some time to enter the site as there was a bag search that delayed things. When we entered we made our way to the Friends of the Fighters tent and paid our entrance fee for the weekend which then enabled us to be on the edge of the tarmac fringe, a great place to view the show. This then would be our base and the place where we would gather when the show was over.
While we waited for the flying to commence we went to the museums on the site, obtained a coffee and doughnut and then sat in our area we had reserved before venturing out to other hangars where many displays were set up.
Following the flying display, we headed back to our hotel for dinner and a deserved drink. Tomorrow we visit the Shuttleworth Collection.
