50th Anniversary at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome

I had to make my yearly visit to the Aerodrome a little earlier than usual. I usually go to the last show of the season when the foliage is nearing peak color, but had to settle on late September.  The weather was perfect, and we had a great day. Unfortunately, the Biplane rides were canceled due to ongoing maintenance… but they should be flying again by now. Notably absent from the show was the Flying Farmer (Stanley Segalla), who retired last year. I was very happy to see the Sopwith Camel out on the field for an engine run-up. It has been out of the show for a few years, and it should be returning to the air next season to battle the Black Baron. Congratulations to the Aerodrome folks for keeping the show going… I hope to attend at least one show a year for the next 50 seasons 🙂
