Duxford RV Bonus day 12th May 2012
If you fly an RV (or are think of building one, or even just like being around exciting aircraft) come to Duxford on 12th May, meet your friends and get Bonus Day Discounts. The RV Bonus Day last year was weathered off, so I'm hoping for sunshine in 2012.
Duxford is home the Imperial War Museum and must be the premier destination for GA pilots in Europe. Most weekends through the flying season, although there are no guarantees, you are quite likely to see warbirds flying – Spitfire, Hurricane, Mustang, B17, Catalina and other rare types are based at Duxford.
The Bonus days offer great discounted prices: all aircraft will enjoy half-price landing fees and much reduced museum admission. Single or twin can land for £7; museum entry is £7 for most adults and children come in free. If you only want a short visit to the museum, come in FREE for up to two hours (but I think you'll want to stay).
There’s lots to see, the £25+ million ‘AirSpace’ project, the American Air Museum and four hangars packed with vintage aircraft, many in flying order – really a ‘must-see.’ We are planning to arrange a couple of short tours to highlight some of Duxford's goodies. If you just want to relax, sit up on the balcony of the Briefing Room (under the tower) and watch the aircraft come and go.
