Where Today’s Pilots Meet World War 2 Aircrew
Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green Airport (EGBO) • 17 June 2018
PILOT info


PROJECT PROPELLER is an annual reunion for ex-World War 2 aircrew held at airfield locations throughout the UK. Its unique feature is that the veterans are ferried for free to and from the venue from all over the UK and Ireland in light aircraft flown by volunteer pilots. For many of them, it is the first time they have flown as “crew” since the end of the war and, for the pilots among them, it is a chance to once again handle an aircraft. At the host airfield, the participants are treated to a street-party lunch and entertained by live, 1940s-style musical entertainment.

VENUE: This year's event will take place on Sunday 17 June 2018 at Wolverhampton, Halfpenny Green Airport - the former wartime airfield of RAF Bobbington. Over 120 aircraft and 140 veterans are expected to attend. Please note - this is a private event and access is by invitation only.

INVITATION: If you are ex-WW2 aircrew of any nation and you would like to attend Project Propeller, please leave a message in the “Aircraft” section of our CONTACT page.

SUPPORT: Project Propeller is not a charity and we rely entirely on sponsorship and financial donations for our existence. It costs about £7000 to mount the event each year and we are grateful for every donation we receive - big or small. If you would like to help, please use the JustGiving buttons on this page. Thank you.
