Where Today’s Pilots Meet World War 2 Aircrew
PILOT info



"We announce, with much regret, that the Project Propeller event scheduled for 21st June at Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green Airport has been cancelled owing to the current situation with the COVID-19 virus. Our veteran guests are all extremely elderly and, therefore, most at risk if they become infected. We will watch future developments closely, listen to official Government advice and will aim to reschedule the event at the end of the summer if circumstances allow.

We wish all our veterans, pilots and other supporters all the very best in these difficult times".

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: We hope to confirm that our next event will be held at Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green Airport. Veteran invitations will be sent out beforehand, and we'll 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.
