Project Propeller gets WW2 aircrew together for final time

Since 1998, volunteer pilots have flown veterans to the event at aerodromes across the UK.

Shropshire has hosted Second World War veterans for a final 'Project Propeller' event.

Despite numbers dwindling since 1998, more than 40 former aircrew attended the Halfpenny Green airfield, near Stourbridge – reunited under these circumstances for the last time.

All in their late 90s and beyond, the guests enjoyed a day with a wide variety of aircraft, including a Spitfire and a Hurricane from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
