Overview

Can't decide between flying, driving and sightseeing? Try all three at the IWM Duxford. Begin with a briefing in the control tower, then don a flight jacket for a flying lesson in a genuine De Havilland Tiger Moth, the quintessential English biplane. Pose for a picture with the Tiger Moth, before hitting Duxford's military testing ground for a driving lesson in an armoured personnel carrier. After a buffet lunch back at the tower, let someone else do the driving on a flight over Cambridge in a De Havilland Dragon Rapide, enjoying unrivalled views over the Fens and the city. A short, private guided tour of Duxford's aircraft collection includes Spitfires, a B17 and the prototype Concorde. Finish with champagne and a certificate presentation.
