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 2017 1940s Weekend was organised by the RAF Harrowbeer Interest Group, in association with the Old Garden & Horticultural Machinery & Tools Club; WWII-Re-Enactment South West Group, and Tavistock Model Flying Club.

Every Hour: MkIX Replica Spitfire with running Merlin engine. Enjoy the sight and sound of a Spitfire starting up with the roar of the mighty 27litere Merlin engine!
