Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome Visit

I made my visit to Old Rhinebeck on Oct. 8th. The weather was perfect and my son and I had a great time. I even took my son up for a bi-plane ride. I noticed a little bit of a decline in the operations there this year. Some of the classic planes were not flying, and the shops had a glaring lack of shirts and other nick-nacks. After I got back, I did a little research and found this thread over at theaerodrome.com. Seems like they are having some management problems, and the decline has been going on for some time. I hope that they can stay afloat… I’m sure the real estate vultures are circling where the planes should be flying. All photos were taken with a Nikon D200 and either a 300mm f/4 or 18-35mm lens.

  1. Nice slideshow…good pics and looks great !

    I was trying to do the same thing but FlashFader doesn’t want to display in my posts even with php codes allowed (exec-php plugin installed). Could you tell me more about your experience ?

  2. Thanks for the comments. Basically I am not using FlashFader as designed. I installed the plugin, created a slideshow, and got the object tag, by doing a View Source. I pasted that directly into the WordPress editor (not the wysiwyg one). After some trial and error, i got it to work by putting the whole tag on one line, with spaces between the different tags (Do a view source on my page to see the object tag… just search for “swf”).

    All the FlashFader plugin requires is the images.xml file and the actual swf. I removed all of the other files, and turned off the plug-in in WordPress. Going forward I will create a new folder with images, and a new images.xml file for each new slideshow, and paste in a copy of the tag that points to the new images.xml file. The one annoyance is that WordPress adds in p-tags and br-tags when you re-edit a post. Those have to be removed before saving. Hope this helps!
