Duxford show to remember Britain's D-Day air assault

Final preparations are underway at Duxford's Imperial War Museum as it prepares to mark the role airmen played in one of the biggest and most significant campaigns of the Second World War.

Historic aircraft have been arriving at the Cambridgeshire airfield, ready to take part in their first major airshow of the year, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day allied invasion of France.

Over the bank holiday weekend, thousands of spectators are expected to arrive to witness the sights and sounds of military aircraft old and new, in tribute to the thousands of servicemen killed on land, sea and in the air around the Normandy beaches in June 1944.
