RAF Harrowbeer is a former WWII Fighter Airfield at Yelverton, Devon. Our main website for all the history of the Airfield is www.rafharrowbeer.co.uk.
The 1940s Weekend started life in 2011 as a one-off event for the 70th Anniversary of the opening of the Airfield on the 15th August 1941. It proved so popular that after a gap of one year, the 1940s Weekend was created in 2013. It has been held every year since, apart from 2019 & 2020. In 2018, a violent Atlantic storm led to the cancellation of the Sunday of the event when the whole site was flooded.
The 1940s Weekend is organised by the RAF Harrowbeer Interest Group.
