A Tigers and Tracks Classic Flying and Military Driving Experience Day for One
Can't decide between flying, driving and sightseeing? Try all three experiences at the IWM Duxford. Begin with a briefing in the control tower, then don a flight jacket for a flying lesson in a genuine de Havilland Tiger Moth, the quintessential English biplane. Pose for a picture with the Tiger Moth before hitting Duxford's military testing ground for a driving lesson in an armoured personnel carrier. After a buffet lunch back at the tower, prepare to hand over the controls with a flight over Cambridge in a de Havilland Dragon Rapide, enjoying unrivalled views over The Fens and the city. Delight in a short, private guided tour of Duxford's aircraft collection and finish with Champagne and a certificate presentation.
