Dawn Patrol Rendezvous
World War I Fly-In
For those of you that are interested in the more than usual forms of flying, you are invited to check out http://www.gwaero.org/homeframeset.html. This is a fly-in for WWI replica aircraft. It's at Wright Patterson Airfield so besides the fly-in there is the museum and all the other attractions of Dayton Ohio.
This three-day flying event of authentic and replica World War I aircraft is offered every other year by the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force and the Great War Aeroplanes Association. The event includes WWI re-enactors in a war encampment area, radio-controlled model aircraft, period vehicles, music and a "swap and shop" of WWI-era items. More information will be available as this event nears.
