RAF Harrowbeer is a former WWII Fighter Airfield at Yelverton, Devon. Our main website is www.rafharrowbeer.co.uk where you can learn all about the Airfield's history.

The 2015 1940s Weekend will be organised by the RAF Harrowbeer Interest Group and will take place over the weekend of the 15th & 16th August 2015 (from 10am to 5pm daily) on land around the restored Dispersal Bay, at Axtown, Yelverton.

This year's event is sponsored by:Moorland Garden HotelGreg Allen Dogtags, Meridian Sea, Ward & Chowen, The Virtual Jet Centre, M&B Lettings, Dartmoor Magazine, Paladin Life, Golf Tee Time Service, Sunrise Windows.

If your Company would like to be a sponsor please email us.

We are pleased to announce that the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight have offered us a flying display by their Douglas Dakota aircraft on BOTH the Saturday & Sunday. This will be dependent on final confirmation but for now, we need to raise £2,100 to be able to make this happen. As our event is completely free to attend, we rely on donations from visitors to pay for boring things like toilets, insurance, road closures, tentage, sound systems etc. The 2014 event covered these costs so now we need to raise money for next year's event.

Please see the Dakota Appeal page to see how you can help make this happen!

Further information about the event will appear in due course and details will be found under the headings on the left.

Our companion site with lots of information on RAF Harrowbeer and its history can be found on www.rafharrowbeer.co.uk
