Following on from last month’s 50th anniversary celebration, what’s involved in planning IWM Duxford’s flying events in 2023?
So much has changed in the half-century of airshows at IWM Duxford. Some of that has been down to natural development, whether reflecting the ever-growing line-up of based historic aeroplanes or evolving to meet audience expectations. In other ways, external factors have come into play. To offer a slightly varied version of an old axiom, success has many parents, and such is the case here. It’s not all about the museum, its team and Duxford’s based private operators. Running such events requires links with a whole spectrum of other bodies, which may not be immediately apparent.
