Default Duxford Flying Legends 9th July

It's that time of year again...




...and the Duxford wing is once again making our annual pilgrimage to the alter of all things piston powered.
McQ and Kav are once again being flown in to take part in this mission whilst Jack and myself are making our way down from T'north to collect brother Dave whilst F1rebrand is making an assault from the east.
I know Irishjg stated he was likely going with speedbird and Boar hinted he was going to try and get there too.
The PC guys (lewis and crew) are also going to be there so it's looking like a good turn out from us pixel flyers.
I just wanted to extend an invite to anyone else to what is one hell of a weekend with much merriment, dagga dagga dagga and 'repeat please' type humour. So if dossing around with a bunch of middle aged kids is your idea of fun let of us know and we'll come and bundle you on the day!!!

Irishjg drop me a PM if you're still going and I'll give you my contact details.

I hope to go the next year. But with the olimpic games, i don´t know if i have some problem (travel, plane ticket, hotel, etc...)

I've heard of a class of ticket "VIP" to approach to aircraft. Gilly, you know something?. Can you purchase the same day?. As you know I'm not from England.

Can I buy tickets on the day? Or is it better to buy tickets online in advance?

Have fun mates

There's the regular entrance which gets you in (£29 this year)and access the the flight line was only £2 I think last year which gets you up close and personal with the aircraft flying (pics above are from the flight line).The VIP or gold tickets also give you lunch and a private seating area.
I've always pre-ordered tickets but you can just turn up on the day (jack did
last year).
As for the Olympics you'd be better off saving the money and having a proper weekend up the road with the warbirds!!!

Cool, we met a few PC guys last year (we're not worthy!!) who are there again this year. If you fancy a warm beer give us a shout and I'll drop my contact details over.

Thank you very much Gilly. No doubt that I'm saving to see these winged beauties
The question is whit the Olympic Games, the travel and accommodation prices will be more expensive


The access to flight line, do you pay there?

Thank you for your attention

Bring a tent and camp like we did. That worked out about £12 per night per person.
The flight line you pay for as you enter it. I think last years proceeds went to a local charity.
Well worth every penny.

Meet you there next year! Can't make it this summer
I miss some english beer soooo much!


@ Gilly: In italy it's still possible to see the Baracca's engine, taken from his last plane crash. It's expsed at "Museo storico dell'Aereonautica" on the Bracciano Lake, near Rome.

That's cool to know and somewhere to add visit when I next make a Modena pilgrimage!
