One of the nations’ premier historical aviation events will bring the excitement and adrenaline of World War I air power to the National Museum of the United States Air Force, Sept. 25-27.
The World War I Dawn Patrol Rendezvous will feature vintage reproduction full scale and 7/8 scale aircraft, such as the Nieuport, SE.5 and Fokker DR-1 triplane. Pilots will perform precision flying in the skies above the Dayton, Ohio-based museum and compete in a flour-bombing competition, with aircraft launching from and landing on the museum’s rear field.
Additional activities include period re-enactors in a war encampment setting, era automobiles on display and participating in a parade, flying exhibitions by radio-controlled aircraft, and a collector’s show for World War I items.
