The Duxford Dash, IWM Duxford, Cambridge - 13th September 2020

Isobel and The Boy Phil are both signed up to run in the Duxford Dash - a 5km run around the airfield at the Imperial War Museum's Duxford outpost. So seeing as we're there, we haul Grandad out in a wheelchair for a look around. As well as the exhibit hangars, there's a bit of vintage aircraft activity including a De Havilland Dragon Rapide, a Harvard, the ever-present Tiger Moths, and a two-seater Spitfire that's doing "experience" flights
