Project Propeller WWII aircrew fly-in

Project Propeller is a great organisation that matches WWII RAF aircrew with pilots for fly-in reunions.

This year, I flew two old boys – a Spitfire pilot and a tail gunner – to Shuttleworth / Old Warden. There was a band, a lecture by Tony Blackman (Vulcan test pilot), tea and cakes. It was a real privilege and a pleasure to sit with these veterans and listen to their stories.

The Spitfire pilot was not too impressed with the Cirrus sidestick but complimented me on my landing (high praise!).

The airfield is lovely too, with a great collection of flyable old aircraft.
