This has the makings of a good shot but the histogram tells me that it's under by the best part of a stop and you've framed (cropped?) it very tightly. So tightly, in fact that the end of the port elevator's out of the frame.
Also, some pretty clumsy content aware/cloning's taken place here.
Hope this helps.

Hi Jester,

you have raised a valid points and I did look at my original RAW file and I had not cropped, so I suspect I was either too close with my 70-300L on my Cropped sensor DSLR, and I also did not zoom back enough as well drrr ! ! !.

From what I can remember the sun was in front and too the side of me which means all my aircraft shots were going to be semi backlight.

If I pushed the shadows and exposure a little more in lightroom I suspect I will loose some detail.

I did clone out some parked aircraft on the horizon / hedge row within LightRoom which can do a reasonable job normally. For more perfect results I do use Photoshop and on this image I did not use PS
For me the scene was always going to be busy with taxing, parked aircraft and dodging back of heads of people in the crowd.

Many thanks for your comments and I will try and take better images when Duxford is open post CV19

It was indeed busy. I was there on the Sunday and had to contend with rain too!
