Duxford, UK — The American Air Museum at Duxford has closed for a year to undergo a major redevelopment.
The section of The Imperial War Museum (IWM) will be closed until spring 2016 while exhibitions and displays within the building are refurbished.
As part of the work, the glazed wall will be removed from the rear of the museum and the suspended aircraft will be lowered from the ceiling and all aircraft will be removed from the building.
But from May onward, many of the museum’s iconic American aircraft will be placed in new locations around IWM Duxford.
The exhibition will be brought up to date with material covering the last two decades of conflict and the political context of that period.
