50 Years of Duxford Air Shows

Since the first show in 1973, IWM Duxford’s air shows have established a reputation as the world’s finest celebrations of aviation history and culture. Every year, tens of thousands come to Duxford’s iconic shows to see legendary aircraft from around the world take to the skies.

Decade by decade, 50 Years of Duxford Air Shows charts the key aviation highlights of the past 50 years through a rich array of vintage photographs and archival material from the original souvenir programmes. Fabulous shots of the air shows are complemented by interviews and anecdotes from the partners and individuals, including Ted Inman, the Hannas and John Romain, who restored popular flight to Duxford’s historic airfield. Each chapter showcases the event’s vibrant history and traces its evolution across five decades. From the rare Spitfires of ’75 to Concorde’s ground-breaking displays and the dawn of Flying Legends, this pictorial celebration recalls Duxford’s golden moments.
