OK, so I remember watching an episode of this anime many many years ago and I can't remember what it was or find it anywhere. It's one of those very vague memories so I don't even have that much to go on. It may have even been a movie. It may even be a terrible anime but it's been irking me for a while now that I can't remember. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So it was about airships. Blimps and planes. It had a kind of WWII feel to the design, but it wasn't set in WWII. I believe there were 2 kids. One girl and one boy. I think the girl was somehow special and the boy had a boomerang he used.

Yeah, not much to go on so I'm not holding my breath. But it's been driving me nuts for a while now.

Cheers

That one fits your description except for the boomerang.

Check the recommended animes to see if any are what you seek

Last Exile fits, but I dont remember a boomerang so that might not be it.

There was a boomerang in http://myanimelist.net/anime/5220/Shangri-La which had a very similar art style to the second season of Last Exile...

There are two other airship anime that I can think of offhand where there are a boy and a girl with the girl being special.

The first is Laputa: Castle in the Sky, a Studio Ghibli film. It definitely fits the theme of early 20th century fashions and military uniforms. However I can't remember a boomerang.

The second is Elemental Gelade. This time the male protagonist has a hook on a whip, which he can throw around and return like a boomerang. However the fashions are more like a fantasy setting than what I would describe as WWII era.
