Duxford to conclude air show season with spectacular Korean War flying display
DUXFORD Imperial War Museum is preparing to conclude its air show season in style with a flying display which recalls the Korean War.
The Autumn Air Show, which takes place on October 16, will remember the first major conflict in which jet aircraft sought air superiority alongside propeller-driven piston fighters.
It will pay homage to the unique international air battle which took place during the Korean War (1950-1953). Piston-engine aircraft will take to the skies alongside the first generation jets.
There will be more exciting aerial action, with flying displays by the Belgian Air Component F-16 and aerobatic masters Alister Kay and Andy Hill in their role as the RV8tors Duo.
The BAe Hawk, flown by Flight Lieutenant Juliette Fleming of 208 (R) Squadron, RAF Valley; the Spitfire IX; the Shorts Tucano from 207 (R) Squadron, RAF Linton-on-Ouse and the Black Cats Lynx Pair from 702 Naval Air Squadron will also be entertaining the crowds.
