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.

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!

Specially notice the really low-pass at 1:09 and in the end of the movie next to the sailboats.  This must have been an amazing airshow, even the movie is!
