Imperial War Museum

The 1974-1977 photos were taken before the Imperial War Museum assumed control of RAF Duxford. Before that it was shared by several different organizations, all fighting for ultimate control. The Imperial War Museum's acquisition of Duxford probably was the best thing that happened to the facility.
