Museum have not released the list yet but you can assume that being a VE-Day show, the majority of participants will be war bird related.

I'm going on the Sunday. I checked to see if I could get another ticket online and was informed show is already sold out. September Battle of Britain show is also sold out. I just got my tickets for both shows in the nick of time.

The show is not sold out, just advanced ticket booking closed. From the web site
Advance ticket booking is now closed, but you can buy tickets on the day.

Please don't take my word for it. The online booking from Duxford has clearly stopped supplying tickets but Pen pusher says its just their allocation. Would hate to think I have stopped someone turning up. Please check.

Pen Pusher is correct. I have NEVER booked an Advance ticket at Duxford, and have ALWAYs been able to pay at the gate for every show going back many, many years.. If you are a Friend of Duxford, go and see my wife Teresa at the FOD enclosure for coffee and biscuits, Sat and Sunday morning.

Not according to the Duxford site, tickets are still available for the September show, and it is all pre-purchased tickets no tickets on the gate on the day.

That's a good point, we are Friends and wondered the other day when we were there where the tent might be sited, and we'll certainly be having tea and bickies :thumbs:
If you can keep your head whilst all around are losing theirs, you have probably completely misread the situation!!

Well, she aready has the staff car pass and entry tickets for both days, and is expected there with the rest of the enclosure team at 8am. There has been no 'E'mail to the contrary, so she expects things to be 'as normal'
