On Wednesday 23rd November 2011, Year 6 visited IWM RAF Duxford. We entered as the museum opened, and visited Hanger 4, where we learnt about the Battle Of Britain. We saw a Hurricane, Spitfire and a V1 rocket among other things.
We were treated to a Spitfire taking off from the runway when we were walking between hangers and it turned and buzzed over our heads.
Our classes experienced the Home Front talk, where they got to wear gas masks and experience life during World War 2. We even had time to climb aboard a Concorde!
