A brilliant line-up is set to wow audiences at The Duxford Air Show on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September
New for Saturday 8 September only is Avro Vulcan XH558, which previously flew at IWM Duxford in September 2008. Vulcan XH558 performs a majestic flying display in the 60th anniversary year of the Vulcan’s maiden flight and the 30th anniversary of the Falklands conflict, in which the Vulcan played a vital role. XH558 was the first Vulcan B Mark 2 to be delivered to the RAF and the last Vulcan to leave RAF service after a sterling 33 years. It is now the oldest complete Vulcan in the world.
Also now confirmed for Saturday only is the Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star, an American-built jet trainer aircraft.
The world-famous Red Arrows perform on Sunday 9 September only.
