Flying Legends Air Show to (Hopefully) Recommence in 2023

The Fighter Collection's magnificent Hawker Nimrod interwar naval fighter is one of the many gems from this collection which will hopefully be on display at the Flying Legends air show reboot this summer, scheduled to take place at Leeds East Airport over the weekend of July 15/16th, 2023.

The Flying Legends air show was, for many years, the most anticipated warbird event in Europe, and we are happy to report that it will likely return this summer following a three-year hiatus. Organized by The Fighter Collection (TFC), this air show will showcase the majority of the airworthy aircraft in their impressive fleet (alongside numerous outside participants) over the weekend of July 15th/16th. Unlike prior Flying Legends events however, this year’s show will take place at Leeds East Airport instead of TFC’s home base at Imperial War Museum Duxford in Cambridgeshire. Much like Duxford though, Leeds East Airport, formerly Royal Air Force Station Church Fenton, is steeped in military history, having served as a fighter base during WWII and for some decades following. In a rural part of Yorkshire, it should prove to be an excellent venue for Flying Legends, despite the logistical issues for TFC (being nearly 200 miles north of Duxford). We look forwards to seeing what this summer’s lineup will be, and hope this event is every bit as exciting as previous incarnations. If past is prologue, then TFC will likely debut an unusual visitor to British skies during Legends – we can’t wait to see what they have in store!
