But when the Red Arrows come - for a display or for a visit - there is a prolonged pause in other activity to satisfy their requirement for clear airspace.
Overall, bearing in mind the restrictions that prevent the best display, and the pauses that are uncharacteristic of Duxford shows, some may be forced to wonder if displays by the Red Arrows add anything to such a show as Flying Legends.
This is not to criticise the team, whose skills are beyond question. Rather it was the way in which their involvement caused stops and starts in an otherwise flowing airshow.
Perhaps they drew additional visitors but surely the vast majority came for the variety and quantity of legendary aircraft that no other show displays as well as Flying Legends.
But two highlights that are Flying Legends regulars are the Balbo and the opening Spitfire formation. The opening formation this year comprised nine Spitfires.
They began in a single formation before breaking into two groups, six of them demonstrating a tailchase whilst the remaining three: SM; the Grace Spitfire ML and Boultbee's RR made a series of low, close passes.
Regular it may be, but the Balbo is no less spectacular for that. Just as exciting as the superbly assembled and choreographed mass flypasts is the gathering and take-off from the airfield of such a number and variety of warbirds, each taking their position on the grass or hard runway and each lifting into the sky solo, in pairs or trios.
Surely at no other airshow is there such a merger of aural harmony and visual delight. The Balbo this year comprised 19 aircraft, led by Pete Kynsey in the Bearcat.
Following the spectacle of the massed take-off, it inevitably takes a while for the aircraft to move into formation. Rather than leave a gap, centre stage is taken by the 'Joker'.
The Joker has nothing to do with the character of the same name in the Batman films. The origin is the jester, employed since ancient times to entertain, notably in the royal courts on several continents, especially in a gap before a feast or the delivery of news.
At Flying Legends, the Joker fills the interludes whilst the Balbo forms up and between the first pass and its return.
Apart from the carefully choreographed balbo split and breaks for landing, that should have been the end of the show.
On Sunday, however, there was an unwelcome extra act when Mustang 'Miss Velma' suffered an engine problem, causing pilot Mark Levy to make an unplanned landing in a wheat field on the other side of the M There was some anxiety following the standard advice that car parks would remain closed for the time being to allow emergency services unhindered access to the surrounding roads, but thankfully news soon broke that the Mustang was upright and the pilot out of the aircraft: which was successfully recovered to the IWM Duxford site the following day.
Huge credit is due to the team for dealing with the incident so quickly and for keeping the crowds informed. Flying Legends promised much and delivered on most of its promises.
It would be unfortunate if it were remembered for a few mishaps. Yes, people will recall that this is where Miss Velma was damaged and yes, it will long be lamented that after an arduous but successful transit from the USA, Berlin Express did not get to complete any of its planned public displays.
But the successes were more numerous than the mishaps. The rare sighting of Mustangs from the USA; the display of the Horsemen; the debut of Hurricane P and especially, very especially, the formation of five Hurricanes and three Mk 1 Spitfires surrounding the Bristol Blenheim.
This may have been the silver anniversary of Flying Legends, but the content was golden. As Monty Python didn't say, 'no-one expects the jet evolution' at Flying Legends, but a legend it is, so the F made a rare non-piston appearance at the show.
Otherwise it was business as usual, with around 50 vintage types gracing the skies over Duxford for the 23rd incarnation of one of the most popular warbird air shows in the world.
Ahead of Flying Legends in , much of the talk was around the new CAA regulations; the display line; the crowd line; the closure of the 'tank bank' and absence of tickets on the gate.
Anyone who feared a negative impact should have been very pleasantly surprised. Advance ticketing certainly eased entry. Straightening the crowd line by moving forward much of the barrier line from the central area eastwards, and measuring the crowd separation distances from these points rather than the tank bank on the far west, brought the crowd closer to the action rather than making the action more distant, as had been feared.
It also enabled the usual multi-axis displays to continue. Brave changes by the organisers that had attracted many groans ahead of time, but very effective and possibly the format for future Duxford airshows.
The show was not a sell-out on either day and the crowds appeared thinner than in earlier years, although that thinness may have appeared exaggerated by the enhanced efficiency of the layout.
The normally shallow crowd area on the tarmac in front of the classic airliners, for example, now spread further forward to allow greater crowd depth.
Another change for was a ban on tents and windbreaks ahead of a white line drawn several metres behind the front of the crowd line. This very welcome change prevented the usual 'hogging' of prime space by an advance guard, saving space with a line of windbreaks for themselves and others who do not arrive until later.
Of course, it doesn't stop the placement of seats for the same purpose, and in practice a few tents did appear, but another laudable innovation by the Legends team.
Perhaps because of the lower numbers, perhaps because of the advance ticket only rule, but for whatever reason the roads and entry lanes coped wonderfully all weekend.
This year an impressive collection of large scale model warbirds were on display in the 'Vintage Village'. On Saturday the weather was dry but not bright enough for the best photos and rather windy.
On Sunday the day started very wet but cleared just in time for the displays, becoming rather better than the day before.
III, with a slightly different routine each day, providing between the days plenty of wingovers and half-cubans as well as a tailchase as a backdrop with the Mk X1V drawing focus in the foreground.
Typically mood-setting Flying Legends intros, albeit disappointingly short. Seven such aircraft will always draw attention, but a particular highlight was Spitfire Mk.
Vb EP, recently rebuilt by Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar from remains recovered from Malta and flying at Legends only 2 months after its first post-build flight on 4th May.
Those wanting to see the unusual Mediterranean-era livery were disappointed, though, as the Mk. Vb was devoid of cannon and wearing a less interesting scheme as a Dunkirk veteran, representing R to suit filming requirements.
The Fury was in its very photogenic Sea Fury prototype paint scheme and looked even more attractive when airborne in the more-than-capable hands of Richard Grace: the star of the show in the eyes of many at Legends Miss Helen, a 'filmstar', having flown in the same 'Memphis Belle' movie as Sally B, flew on both days of the show and is the last original nd Fighter Group P known to exist.
Shiny coats were in vogue with two out of three Hawks, the Swiss-based Classic Formation of two Beech 18s and a DC-3 - another Legends first - and two of the three Flying Bulls all sporting bodies to match the polish of their displays.
This schedule might be interupted by the Covid pandemic. We will have to wait and see if the edition can go ahead as planned.
