LATEST NEWS (26 February 2021):

Sadly, owing to the current restrictions caused by the COVID-19 virus, the next Project Propeller has been re-scheduled and, circumstances permitting, will now be held at Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green Airport on Sunday 19 September 2021.
We regret any inconvenience caused by this postponement but hope that our veterans, pilots and supporters will still be able to join us for this very special day. Thank you for your continuing support.

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: Our next event will be held at Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green Airport on Sunday 19 September 2021. Veteran invitations will be sent out beforehand and we will be fundraising again to help cover the cost of the event.

INVITATION: If you are ex-WW2 aircrew of any nation and you would like to attend Project Propeller, please open the "Contacts" tab and then select "Aircraft" from the drop-down menu. Send us your details in the message section and they will be routed to our Air Ops Manager who deals with new veterans.

SUPPORT: Project Propeller is not a charity and we rely entirely on sponsorship and financial donations for our existence. It costs about £6000 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.
