:: Duxford Flying Legends 2008 Air Show, United Kingdom ::

After my morning drive and getting to know the Duxford Imperial War Museum, I paid more attention to the air show.

While my previous air show at Waddington mainly featured modern aircraft, the Flying Legends show delighted the crowds with WWII era and even older planes. Want to take a ride with your family on board the '30s de Havilland Dragon Rapide? No problem. Never seen the allied fighters? All the Spitfire variants you would want to see flying are right there in front of you. Messershmidts and Yaks? You've got it!

Heritage flights, simulated dogfights and close fly-by's were performed a mere hunderd meters in front of the pleased onlookers. Among others, Guinot wingawalkers were invited to the party and performed a very nice air show with dizzying stunts.

For this airshow, photos to tell most of the story, so go onwards to the Flying Legends 2008 gallery.
