Duxford Flying Legends 2012 Photos visit with a DC-3

Duxford Flying Legends 2012
This weekend the Duxford Flying Legends airshow took place. This is one of the worlds leading aviation events.In the airshow the most legendary propeller aircraft from around the second world war can be seen. For aviation lovers it is an absolute must to visit. The fantastic authentic airfield with magnificent museums is an experience on its own, not to start about the fantastic airshow during the last 3-4 hours of the day.
For us this day had an extra dimension because of the most fantastic transportion we took, a DC-3 of the DDA Classic Airlines. Following a photo impression of probably one of the most amazing days of this year.

Fly to Duxford flying Legends airshow with a DC-3 from Amsterdam

After watching this trailer, I was wondering myself how to get to Duxford at 30 June..

It is a bit late to find a hotel near Cambridge because everything is pretty much overbooked already or you will pay the raised pricing anyway.
Fortunately there is a great alternative offered by the DDA. You will fly with a direct flight from Schiphol airport to the airport in just about the best possible transportation for this occasion, the DC-3!

At the end of the day you are even flown back in style. 😀 You have to pay some money but from a previous flight with the DDA I can tell this is an experience you will remember for a long time.. BTW Which airplane enthusiast would not want to Duxford? Even the entrance of the air show is included in the price of tickets.
Watch the trailer and see for yourself, such as the DDA says “Need we say more?” Do not hesitate and book fast!

Dc-3 Dakota Fly-in Aviodrome 2006

Today I heard the tragic news that the Aviodrome filed for bankruptcy. Especially for the people who work for the organisation it is very sad certainly in these uncertain times. I wish the staff a lot of strength.
As a regular visitor, it is also a real loss. I often take a look in this unique museum and especially in the (aviation) events. I’ve already wrote about some of these events of the Aviodrome before, today I wanted to add the Dakota Fly-in of 2006.

Foto’s KLU Luchtmachtdagen Leeuwarden 2011 Bezoek met de DC-3

Vandaag was ons jaarlijkse bezoekje aan de luchtmachtdagen, dit jaar in Leeuwarden en we bezochten deze dag met een heel bijzonder vervoersmiddel, we vlogen in stijl met de DC-3 van de DDA naar dit fantastische evenement. Er moet wel bijgezegd dat de vrijdag fantastisch als altijd was (en zelfs meer dan dat) maar de zaterdag toch enigszins tegenviel. De airpower demo kon niet ondersteund worden met F-16’s, de Red Arrows konden hun complete show ook niet doen, de Orion die over zou komen was ook verhinderd. Uiteraard was het allemaal onmacht, zeker in het geval van de Red Arrows alle begrip maar voor een voorlopig laatste luchtmachtdag was het toch een teleurstellend einde. Laten we zeggen, over 2 jaar beter, al is het maar de vraag hoe de luchtmacht er op dat moment voor staat…
