Where Today’s Pilots Meet World War 2 Aircrew
Coventry Airport • 23 June 2019
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.
The 2018 event photo album is under the 'Events' tab.

VENUE: The 2019 event will be held at Coventry Airport on Sunday 23 June 2019. 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 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 £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.
