IWM Battle of Britain Airshow
September 23 at 10:00 am - September 24 at 5:00 pm
Ahead of the Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September, IWM Duxford has released some important safety information that it wishes to share with local residents:
- IWM Duxford takes great care to ensure that its air shows are as safe as possible for everyone involved. ‘Secondary crowding’ is no longer acceptable at any air show and IWM has a duty of care to ensure that this is reduced as much as possible. It is therefore not safe to occupy the fields surrounding IWM Duxford during the air show. If you do so you are putting yourself and the display pilots in harm’s way and potentially preventing IWM from continuing with the flying programme.
- Grange Road will be closed on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September 2017.
- The fields around IWM Duxford are private property and IWM has been working with the farmers to prevent trespassing. Therefore there is no public access to these fields at any time.
- Please also note that two of the aircraft teams displaying as part of the Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show will be using pyrotechnics and simulated explosions within their flying displays.
