A very appropriate venue indeed then for getting up close with a Spitfire on a very special flight.
The experience starts with a meet and greet in the original 1940s control tower where the itinerary for the day will be explained to you.
You may find it hard to concentrate though, as Duxford is a working airfield, with many flights coming in and out each day, so you might see one of the Spitfire's contemporaries taking off, or some interesting jet aircraft landing. It's then time to depart from Duxford.
Flights on the De Havilland Rapide to track your Spitfire are like stepping back in time to the birth of commercial aviation, as this was the first airliner of its type.
Before pleasure and business flying took off, excuse the pun, this short haul biplane aircraft first built in the 1930s also had a role in WW2 carrying out passenger and communication duties, making it a highly appropriate plane for the job today.
And so, as you climb above Duxford airfield on your 30-minute flight, the moment you will have been waiting for, the Spitfire arrives.
Yes, you will be in flight with a Duxford Spitfire for around 15 glorious minutes.
From your truly privileged position inside the main cabin you will be able to watch, listen and photograph the Spitfire in elegant flight right next to you.
The cabin configuration of the Rapide means that every passenger gets a window seat, so you will you all have plenty of opportunity to take some breathtaking photos of this iconic plane that, with Duxford, played such an important role in the Second World War.
After these Spitfire flights, out of Duxford, you have the rest of the day to enjoy the plane collections and wander around the seven different exhibition hangars at IWM Duxford.
Complimentary same day entry to the museum is offered to all those who have been on these very special Duxford flights.
