Imperial War Museum - Major Aircraft Announcement!
The Patrouille de France and Dassault Rafale are returning to Duxford Air Shows after spectacular performances in past years. Equipe de Voltige’s first Duxford Air Festival appearance completes a trio of amazing demonstration acts from the French Air Force.
The Dassault Rafale Solo Display visited for the first time in 2017 and wowed us with its high speed and agility as well as its electric blue and silver paint scheme. The Rafale is the primary ‘multi-role’ fighter for the French Air Force.
It’s our fastest participating aircraft with a top speed of over 1000 mph and we’ve given it our top score for power and agility.
Patrouille de France(Sunday only)
Watch out for the blue, white and red smoke! The tricolour of La France. As one of the world’s oldest jet display teams, the Patrouille de France are returning to Duxford Air Shows once again to bring that certain something or je ne sais quoi to Duxford Air Festival. We’ve given them 5 out of 5 for agility!
Equipe de Voltige
Completing our French trio, Equipe de Voltige are an aerobatic team of pilots flying the Extra 330 SC. Making their Duxford debut, anyone familiar with the aircraft will agree they deserve full marks for agility. A highlight of the weekend, we can't wait to welcome the team to Duxford this May.
Boeing Chinook(Saturday only)
The Chinook is used primarily for carrying troops, resupply and battlefield casualty evacuation. It can carry up to 54 troops or 10 tonnes of freight. The cabin is large enough to accommodate two Land Rovers, while three underslung hooks allow this helicopter to transport loads hanging from below its belly.
Extremely manoeuvrable with a 4 out of 5 rating from us for agility, expect the unexpected from this giant of the sky!
Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Ia (N3200)
Built in early 1939 it joined 19 Squadron, based at RAF Duxford, on 19 April 1940. Whilst involved in fighting to protect the British Expeditionary Force evacuations above the Calais area, the Spitfire made a forced landing on the beaches. Now recovered and fully restored it is the only airworthy exhibit in IWM's collections.
