WORLD War Two veterans landed at Coventry Airport on Saturday for a special event to reunite the heroic pilots.
Project Propeller brings surviving World War II RAF air crew together with their modern day counterparts once a year to share stories.
The event has taken place each year since 1999 and this year Coventry was chosen to allow visitors to take in the Airbase living air museum.
And around 100 light aircrafts filled the city's skies, carrying a host of former RAF pilots and crew. There was also a fly past by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
"This is a very prestigious event within the RAF community and we are delighted they chose us to be this year’s co-host along with the Airbase," said Marc Watkins, business development manager at Coventry Airport.
"Part of the criteria for their venue selection is not only must it be able to accommodate such a large number of aircraft but must also have plenty for the visitors to see and do throughout the day."
