26th-27th May 2018, IWM Duxford, Cambridgeshire

Last updated: April 18, 2018 at 9:40 am

The Duxford Air Festival will be a feast of action-packed flying full of speed, noise, power and thrills.

Across the museum, visitors can enjoy a wide range of events and activities. The Family Flight Challenge shows that it takes more than a pilot to make an aircraft fly: from scientists and engineers to designers and mechanics. You might find yourself leaping into the air, slipping-on goggles, meeting our real inventors and adventurers or working in a team to make something fly. In our ‘Meet the Authors’ marquee writers will discuss their current books and take questions from the audience.
