It last flew at Duxford during September 2008.

The Imperial War Museum has also confirmed that the Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star – an American-built jet trainer aircraft – will be performing on the Saturday, while the Red Arrows will grace the show during the Sunday.

The Duxford Air Show will take place on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September.

Tickets can be purchased online or by calling the Box Office on 01223 499 353.  The Box Office is open from Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
