The rain held off (most of the time!) and the airshow went ahead the weekend of July 23/24, with a limited number of tickets being sold.
Duxford village – and quite a few visitors – came together on both the Recreation Ground and on Brewery Field, to watch the wonderful flying displays, including spitfires, the Sally B (B-17), the thrilling typhoon and the amazing Red Arrows .
All the superb photos that follow were taken by local photographer Adrian Powter.
Thanks to DUFC for offering parking on their pitch and thus reducing congestion in the village. Although there was general disappointment that the school had not been able to open, the facilities at the new Community Centre were very much appreciated.
We had so many compliments about how the village has improved, particularly from the visitors, who only come on airshow days. The new exercise equipment on Brewery Field was very well used by all the children and many people said how interesting the space is now and how much they were enjoying the different areas.
