Flying legends take to the skies for Duxford weekend




Iconic aircraft filled the skies over Cambridgeshire at the weekend as they assembled for the 27th Flying Legends Show at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford.

On a weekend that saw the legendary Spitfire take to the air along with the celebrated Red Arrows aerobatic team from RAF Scampton, many of the crowd also took the time to turn the clock back with a variety of clothing straight out of the pilot manual.

Visitors could be seen wearing the trademark leather flying jackets and aviator sunglasses as they made the most of the flying displays that proved to be a tremendous success.

The two-day extravaganza gave the event goers the chance to witness flying skills of unique aircraft that are rarely, if ever, seen together in the skies over England.

The famous Red Arrows once again thrilled the crowds on the ground with their delivery of aerobatic skills and the tell tale red, white and blue smoke trails, while visitors got the chance to chat to the pilot and ground crew.
