Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome Airshow
August 5, 2017 @ 10:00 am - August 6, 2017 @ 5:00 pm$5 – $25.
The stars are the historic airplanes including our 1909 Bleriot, the oldest regularly flying airplane in the Western Hemisphere; the Fokker DR-I Triplane, the most famous fighter of WWI; and a precise replica of the Spirit of St. Louis, which was the first aircraft to fly NY to Paris in 1927. While aircraft rotate on and off the flightline, usually 15-20 are flyable for our shows. The Saturday “History of Flight” programs highlight the Pioneer era before WWI, a WWI show teaser, and the Golden Age of Aviation in the ’20s and ’30s. The Sunday shows are our WWI spectacular with a hero, a heroine (Cheer!), the villainous Black Baron of Rhinebeck (Boo!), scenery, pyrotechnics and a WWI tank. Gift Shop and snack bar will be open. Come early and stay late to see the Museum, take a Bi-plane ride, or enjoy the grounds. Show begins at 2 pm and run until approximatley 4 pm.
