Wow. F-111, SR-71, F-15, B-52... the list goes on. It is small but has so many iconic aircraft in one place. The rest of the museum is also great, and I can recommend the Tiger Moth ride!

This made a perfect day out having done several days in Cambridge. Excellent range of planes on display and fascinating history. Well worth the combined ticket with IWM

Was not expecting too much was impressed by the collection of aircraft there. Centrepiece is the B52 which occupies much of the space. Many other interesting items as part of the overall Duxford complex.
