The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team – the Red Arrows – are to make a spectacular return to this year’s Flying Legends air show.
They will provide one of the few opportunities to see their dynamic aerobatics before they head on a tour of the United States.
The team’s display on July 13 will be the only chance to see them at historic Duxford this year.
Squadron Leader Martin Pert, team leader of the Red Arrows, said: “It is always a privilege to display at Duxford.”
Flying Legends will feature more than 50 historic aircraft in choreographed set piece displays, from iconic Spitfires to favourites such as B-17 ‘SallyB’ and a host of exotic visiting warbirds.

Nick Grey, Director of the Fighter Collection, said: “75 years ago, the largest armada ever to set sail left our shores for France. We celebrate the courage of the young men and women who gave their lives to save the free world.
