Our Saturday "History of Flight" program highlights the Pioneer era before WWI, a WWI show teaser, and the Golden Age of Aviation in the '20s and '30s. Our Sunday show is our WWI dog fight spectacular with a hero, a heroine, and the villainous Black Baron of Rhinebeck, scenery, pyrotechnics, and a WWI tank. The supporting cast includes many antique automobiles. 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 from New York to Paris in 1927. While aircraft rotate on and off the flightline, usually 15-20 are flyable for our shows. Our air shows are every Saturday and Sunday June 17, 2023 through October 15, 2023. Gates open at 10AM. Pre-show activities begin at 2PM. Flying begins at 2:30PM. Museum building is open daily 10AM-5PM, May 1 - October 31.
