Flying Legends, Duxford, England, July 2002.: The RAF Base at Duxford near Cambridge is the site of several large air shows each year including the Flying Legends in July, featuring the legendary airplanes of World War II. I have been to a few shows since where one or two Mustangs buzzed by, so the sheer number of Mustangs and Spitfires that they put into the air at Duxford is what sets this show apart. It was amazing to see groups of vintage aircraft looping through the sky just as they did 60 years before. The base also is the location of the Imperial War Museumís aircraft collection and includes the largest display of historical American military aircraft outside of the US.
