There are two kinds of people reading these words: Those who have resolved that someday they’re going detour to that aero paradise in the woods of downstate New York and those who have already been-there-done-that but are determined to do
it again. It is a form of aviation potato chip: You can’t do it just
once. Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome, the nation’s first—and oldest—
exhibition of prewar flying machines, exerts an indefinable
attraction for any who loves aviation history. And fun! And can
appreciate both being presented in a vaguely campy manner.
Rhinebeck Aerodrome combines history with entertainment.
