Since the first show in 1973, IWM Duxford’s air shows have established a reputation as the world’s finest celebration 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 unseen vintage photographs and archival material from the original programmes. Fabulous shots of the air shows are complemented by interviews and accounts from the partners and individuals that restored popular flight to IWM Duxford’s historic airfield. Each chapter showcases the event’s vibrant history and traces its evolution across five decades. From super debuts, dazzling flypasts and all-action aerobatics, this pictorial celebration recalls Duxford’s golden moments.
