The Coming of the Second World War

In preparation for war, airfields are modernised, the RAF invests in new fighter aircraft, such as the Supermarine Spitfire, and radar stations are constructed as part of the Air Defence of Great Britain.

The Outbreak of the Second World War

War is declared on 3 September 1939. Neville Chamberlain announces that appeasement has failed and that “this country is at war with Germany”.

The Battle of Britain Begins

From 10 July to 11 August 1940, the Luftwaffe attacked British shipping in the channel and drew Britain’s Fighter Command into combat. The beginning of the battle is commemorated by recreating an RAF fighter scramble with pilots running towards their waiting aircraft to chase off the enemy aircraft.

Evolving Tactics

As the Battle of Britain develops, so do the tactics of the pilots of Fighter Command.

Target London

The German forces turn their attentions away from airfields and towards London in what became known as the Blitz. The Duxford Big Wing, an air fighting formation of three to five squadrons, comes into operation for the first time in a patrol over North Weald. This key moment in Duxford’s history is honoured with a massed flypast of Spitfires taking off from our historic airfield.
