The new American Air Museum at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford will officially open in March 2016.

It's taken five years to transform the iconic building which contains US aircraft from the 1930s to the present day.

The Imperial War Museum says the building will contain the best collection of American military aircraft on public display outside North America.

It will also act as a memorial to the 30,000 US airmen and women who were killed while serving from Great Britain during the Second World War.
