As people gradually get back to normal after the last two years, what a better place to visit than the IWM at Duxford.
With more shows planned for 2022, the smaller shows give good value, and there is the added bonus of a look around the hangars, there is never a dull moment at Duxford.
The Corsair and Mustang, opened today's show being displayed by the father and son Brian and Nick Smith.
Another aircraft seen regularly at Duxford, the Jungman displayed by Anna Walker, Anna also flies the Harvard, Hurricane and Spitfire from Duxford.
Next we have Pete Kynsey in the Cosmic Wind, Pete is a familiar face at Duxford, and regularly displays a variety of aircraft at shows here.
Now for some aerobatics from the Yak-52, this aircraft is fully aerobatic, but of a more modern design normally displayed at Duxford.
The Catalina and Staggerwing were an unusual pairing, probably the only thing similar on these aircraft are the engines which are both radials. Needless to say, it is a joy to watch these vintage aircraft perform for the crowds.
The Hurricane and Nimrod were next up, with some flypasts and then individual displays.
Finally finishing off the flying display, it was the turn of the Spitfire and Bouchon carrying out some flypasts and finishing off with some tail chases which Duxford is famous for.
