The year was 1940, the sky was filled with battling aircraft and the world was at war. The Battle of Britain was one of the most pivotal moments in WWII and the Duxford aerodrome was at the forefront of the battle for England’s airspace.

Nowadays it has been transformed into the Imperial War Museum’s aeronautical branch. And here you can get a taste of the wartime life that the RAF and its allies endured, from defensive raids to daily sorties.

At the AirSpace hangar you can see some of the most famous and infamous military aircraft, from the iconic Spitfires to a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird.

Other highlights to enthrall include the Battle of Britain exhibition, the American Air Museum and the 1940 Operations Room.

It doesn’t stop there; plan ahead and you can see some of the greatest aircraft in all their airborne glory at one of the airshows. Or – if you dare – take to the sky yourself in a vintage aircraft.
