MH434 & 1944 MK XI SPITFIRES
The MH434 Spitfire, the most famous military aircraft of all time is remarkably original, having never been subject to a re-build, owned and operated by the Old Flying Company. The Spitfire PRX1 PL983/G-PRX1 is the latest aircraft to emerge from the workshop of Historic Flying Ltd (HFL) at Duxford. Flying display at 2 pm, (timetable subject to change and weather dependent).
Watch these beautiful creatures trot around the grounds in all their glory. The Suffolk Punch is the oldest breed of working horse in the world and is unique in its chestnut colour. As we all know this year remembers the end of the Great War, therefore our Suffolk horses will be in agricultural vehicles/implements of that period. The Suffolk horse is the oldest of the heavy horses but unfortunately the most critically endangered.
At the end of each day, vintage tractors will parade around the main ring to a commentary. If you want to get involved, please download, complete and return the ‘Tractor form’.
FREE PARKING FOR PLANES AND CARS!
Up to 110 light aeroplanes will be landing and taking off from a grass runway at the rear of Heveningham Hall each day. If you’d like to fly in, please email or call Flying Director John Hill.
Outside the main ring there are many other attractions and activities to get stuck into. From music to children's activities to impressive vehicles, there’s something for the whole family. If you need a break from all the excitement you can relax in the Walled Garden with a cream tea!
Children come and enjoy this traditional puppet show following the antics of Mr Punch and his wife Judy.

Cambridgeshire Ferret Welfare & Rescue Society
The society was founded in 1989 by a group of enthusiasts with the hope of eliminating the negative attitude towards ferrets and widening knowledge about good welfare practices.
The aim of the Society is to give advice about ferret welfare, both as working animals and as pets. We also rescue, care for and re-home unwanted and abandoned animals. The society is not a registered charity but we are a charitable cause with all the monies raised going towards the promotion of ferret welfare and the upkeep of the rescued ferrets in our care.
Alpacas, pygmy goats and chicks, to name a few! Come and hold a chick or get close to one of the larger animals.
