Based on the historic Duxford Aerodrome, this site was originally operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) during the First World War. Then, during the Second World War, Duxford played a prominent role in the Battle of Britain and was later used by United States Army Air Forces fighter units in support of the daylight bombing of Germany.
Duxford remained an active RAF airfield until the year 1961. After the Ministry of Defence declared the site surplus to requirements in 1969, the Imperial War Museum requested permission to use part of the site for storage. The entirety of the site was transferred to the museum in February 1976.
Keeping with history, many of Duxford’s buildings, such as hangars used during the Battle of Britain, are still in use. Many buildings are of particular architectural or historic significance and over thirty have listed building status.
