Description: American Air Museum
Duxford, Cambridgeshire, England

The American Air Museum
The American Air Museum in Britain stands as a memorial to the 30,000 Americans
who died flying from the UK in the Second World War. This outstanding example of contemporary
British architecture houses Duxford's unique collection of historic American combat aircraft
including the B-17 Flying Fortress, with many suspended from the ceiling as if in flight.

Duxford airfield in Cambridgeshire was a Battle of Britain fighter station.
Later, as one of a hundred US Airforce bases in Britain, it was the headquarters
of the 78th Fighter Group. Now maintained by the Imperial War Museum, it has the finest
collection of American aircraft outside the United States. Nineteen of its thirty-eight aircraft
are airworthy and it attracts over 350,000 people each year to its summer air displays.
The centrepiece of the collection is also the largest - a B-52 bomber.
