Flying Legends at Duxford is one of the world’s foremost gathering of warbirds. Rather than individual displays, the whole afternoon was beautifully choreographed as a fluid performance, culminating in a ‘balbo’ (formation flypast) of twenty-seven aircraft.

As usual, the event was the same weekend as RIAT so it was a busy couple of days for me. I picked a good spot at the western side of the airfield, well placed to snap the planes as they took off.
