Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome
The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome all begins in the Pioneer Building with the crude biplane hang gliders that inspired the Wright Brothers. Marvel at their historic “Flyers” and follow the decade of innovation with Bleriot, Curtiss, and others. These men and their machines were “Magnificent.”
Names like Fokker and Von Richthofen, SPAD and Rickenbacker, echo through the WWI Building. See how aircraft matured under the pressures of aerial combat. Aviation became an extension of knights in shining armor and the pilots the last of the single combat warriors.
Barnstormers spread flying across the country, Lucky Lindy flew the Atlantic, and little airplanes for private flyers became part of the roaring 20s and 30s. In the Golden Age Building, you’ll find the WACOs, Aeroncas, Fairchilds, Taylors, and other great names of the era.
It all comes together in the History of Flight Building with our comprehensive exhibit of the aircraft, vehicles, engines, and memorabilia that make up our static display and compose a tribute to the glory of man’s conquest of the air.
