Being the 70th anniversary of the USAAF deployment in United Kingdom during the World War Two (1943), the airshow will have a focus on US airplanes. You can also visit the museum which has a very interesting display.

Following an excerpt of the Airshow description from the official IWM Duxford Website:
Remembering the Mighty Eighth
Starting the air show season in spectacular style, the Spring Air Show brings together contemporary and historic aircraft for a fabulous day of flying.
This year, the Spring Air Show commemorates the 70th anniversary of the United States Army Air Force arriving at RAF Duxford in April 1943. We’ll look at the impact of the American Forces on the course of the Second World War in Europe and their cultural influence on the East Anglian community.
Historic US warbirds will take to the skies as we remember the time when the stars and stripes flew at RAF Duxford.
