Thanks for that link Wallie.

It's only Flying Legends that is no longer happening, that is run by the Fighter collection (TFC) rather than IWM Duxford themselves. As it stands the other Duxford shows will continue but you have to wonder if they just don't want airshows there anymore as they take a lot to run - it must bring in money for them but maybe not enough to justify the effort. TFC provide many of the aircraft as well so who knows how they will feel about providing aircraft to a replacement show at Duxford.

I hope TFC find an alternative venue but there isn't much choice nearby ( I can only think of a couple but not totally viable so I won't start a rumour!), perhaps they will even move their entire operation away from Duxford at some point to somewhere where they have more control.

Apparently it has been confirmed that Flying Legends will take place at Sywell July 10-11th 2021. :D

With Duxford, many of the influx of visitors by air had to go to the overflow airfields at Fowlmere and Cambridge but Sywell is large enough that most of the usual influx of visitors by air should be able to park on the airfield so all the aircraft should be in one place.

Fingers crossed Martin, was always a good day with the show and visiting Fowlmere and Cambridge for the overflow aircraft- just hope the virus is sorted before the event- fingers crossed. :blush:
