Heroic Veterans Return to Wolverhampton Airport

Heroic Veterans Return to Wolverhampton Airport

It’s been three years since we last saw the return of Project Propeller, the annual event celebrating the heroic triumphs of the much-respected veterans who fought for our freedom in WWII. Project Propeller last went ahead back in 2018 at Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green Airport.

The event saw a reunion of ex-airmen who had the chance to meet today’s pilots and aircrew serving in the armed forces. During Project Propeller the veterans are taken to and from the venue from all over the UK and Ireland in light aircraft flown by volunteer pilots. It’s a chance for veterans to handle an aircraft again and relive their time as a pilot, the day is also usually followed by a street-party lunch and entertained by live, 1940s-style musical entertainment.

Due to Covid-19 presenting a huge risk to peoples health the event has unfortunately been cancelled for the past two years in a row. However, this year we are delighted that the event will go ahead this weekend on Sunday 19th September and will be welcoming guests once again to Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green Airport. This year the event will follow in a similar style to previous years with the main event being held in one of The Airport’s hangars. With much delight for our special guests, they will once again be reunited with their fellow ex-air men.

Take a look at some of the photos from previous years below.
