The Korean War (25 June 1950 to armistice signed 27 July 1953) was the first major conflict in which jet aircraft sought air superiority alongside the final-generation propeller-driven piston fighter aircraft.
The Autumn Air Show pays homage to this uniquely international air battle, with an exciting flying participation which sees iconic piston-engine aircraft take to the skies alongside the first generation of jet aircraft.
In addition to the central theme of Remembering the Korean War, the Autumn Air Show presents even more exciting aerial action, with flying displays by the Belgian Air Component F-16; aerobatic masters Alister Kay and Andy Hill in their role as the RV8tors Duo; the BAe Hawk, flown by Flight Lieutenant Juliette Fleming of 208 (R) Squadron, RAF Valley; Spitfire IX; the Shorts Tucano from 207 (R) Squadron, RAF Linton-on-Ouse and the Black Cats Lynx Pair from 702 Naval Air Squadron.
The Tiger Nine Team will perform a thrilling display with nine Tiger Moths in celebration of the 80th anniversary of the first flight of the de Havilland DH 82 Tiger Moth.
With further fantastic flying participation to be confirmed and with activities happening across the Museum throughout the day, the Autumn Air Show will provide a thrilling conclusion to Duxford’s air show season for 2011. We support both Duxford and the Sally B Trust so that our younger generations can understand and appreciate a time before computers and x-boxes! IT makes a brilliant day out and there are a lot of attractions, exhibits, displays and lectures totally under cover if the weather changes...
