Aircraft on the move around IWM Duxford

By Jenny on 29/05/2015

Here’s an update on when the aircraft will be moving back into the American Air Museum if you were thinking of planning a visit to IWM Duxford to coincide with the movement of a particular aircraft.

As part of the redevelopment project, the aircraft and vehicles were removed from the American Air Museum and relocated in other buildings on site in April and May. They are now being condition-checked and, where necessary, conserved before being re-displayed in the American Air Museum when it re-opens in Spring 2016.
