iow-day-bembridge

On Saturday 24 September the Britten-Norman Aircraft Preservation Society will support the Isle of Wight High Sheriff’s “Isle of Wight Day” with an informal event to be held at the newly re-opened Propeller Inn, Bembridge Airport, from 10.00am to 12.00pm. 


An exhibition illustrating the history and restoration of B-N Islander, G-AVCN will be on view. At 11.00am there will be a first showing of a new video about the project that reflects the “Island Enterprise” theme of the day.


Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided and all are welcome to attend. There is no entry charge butall donations will be gratefully received.

The Propeller Inn and the adjacent hangar are of significant historical importance in the Isle of Wight and National aviation heritage context.

The BN-2 Islander prototype was designed and built here and the type went on to become the most successful light utility/transport aircraft in Europe with over 1250 aircraft delivered and some 500+ still in service around the World.

Thanks go to Chris and Annie Parsons at the Propeller Inn for giving BNAPS their kind permission to hold our “Isle of Wight Day” event at the newly refurbished premises.
