Duxford airshow 2019 dates

Recommended Posts

Greetings all,

Can anyone tell me either the dates of the Duxford airshow next july, or when they tend to announce?

I'm trying to work out how many days of Riat to book and where I should look at hotels...

Thanks!

Hi Phil

 

There are no dates published for the 2019 shows at Duxford, but if the past few years are anything to go by, Flying Legends is likely to be the same weekend as RIAT!

 

I did attend both events one year, but have now decided that RIAT takes precedence for me if there is a clash!

I have a plan for that eventuality. Day 1 at Duxford, drive to the Riat area, sleep somewhere. Day 2 at Riat.

 

Cracking plan *if* they do fall on the same weekend!

 

Of course, next year being D-Day 75, there may be a greater than normal warbird attendance at Riat...

Regarding D-Day i can tell you that it will be busy but not especially on the RIAT..but there is a possibility that they want to do something for market garden the berlin airlift or normandie.

The armada of Dakota's for Daks over Normandie will be arriving in the end of may between the 10th and 25th..

They will arrive in three waves during that period at Duxford..

Then they assemble at Duxford and practise the jumps over there, in the week before the 6th of june there is a full program regarding D-Day..

At this moment 37 Dakota's are confirmed for that event..

After that they fly the whole formation into Normandy in one big wave, and after that week in Normandy a lot of planes will stay in Europe at Weisbaden too venture into a Berlin airlift rememberance and do a big thing at the Netherlands in September for Market garden..

 

Cheers, Jan

The programme for this event has now been published

The good news, for me at least, is if they follow the normal route East of Duxford, on the flight to Colchester, they will fly over maison 821

Would Maidstone actually be Detling  (beacon ) ? Either is good , but Detling is closer for me.
