Buchon - Flying Legends Airshow.

Flying Legends Airshow History

The Flying Legends Airshow is a hugely popular event which features an unrivalled line up of the great classic piston engine fighters and bombers of both World Wars.

The air show, which is run by 'The Fighter Collection' (TFC), usually takes place over a weekend in July and has previously been held at Duxford in Cambridgeshire.

On the 25th August 2020 it was announced that the Flying Legends Airshow will no longer be taking place at Duxford. The 2020 show was cancelled due to the Coronavirus and the last 'Flying Legends' airshow to take place at Duxford was in 2019.

The reason given by IWM Duxford was that due to 'financial pressures which have resulted from the coronavirus pandemic over the past few months, IWM Duxford has been required to examine all future events and consult with key partners to ensure that, as a charity, the organisation is able to maximise income and remain financially stable.' It was therefore mutually agreed that TFC would seek an alternative location to host Flying Legends. See Press Release here.

It was announced on the 6th November 2020 that the Flying Legends Airshow would take place at Sywell Aerodrome, Northants, on 10th - 11th July 2021. See Press Release here.

From the Flying Legends organisers:

Dear Friends of Flying Legends,

In the light of yesterday's message (27.05.2021) from our Prime Minister, and the uncertainty surrounding the UK opening fully for business, it is with deep regret and a heavy heart that we must cancel this year's event. We understand the government's careful position but cannot safely stay the course in the light of the potential loss and lack of clarity so close to show time.

We sincerely apologise for the disappointing news but the circumstances are truly out of our control. We will be reimbursing all of you, our faithful friends of Flying Legends who pre-paid for tickets in the coming days.

On a personal note and in the name of the whole team at The Fighter Collection who have worked so hard this past year to prepare the aircraft and the show itself, please know that this decision has not come lightly. We are very sad but pray that next year will be COVID free for all and that Flying Legends 2022 will be a classic.

Thank you for your understanding and for your dedication and support.

Yours sincerely

Nick Grey
