Cool
Golden Age Air Museum- Bethel, PA

I just discovered this air museum on the internet today, looks like a really cool place I have to take a few trips to next year. It looks like the Pennsylvania version of Old Rhinebeck, with an emphasis on early aircraft, and WW-1 themed and barnstorming events they put on.

Here's a link to a Fokker Triplane replica they are building:

I've seen that Golden Age museum website. Aircraft of that era have a certain elegance.

Gents, If you are interested I have posted the details and photos of Our Triplane (Golden Age Air Museum) here on RC Groups see the 1:1 Scale Triplane and Pup thread. Now that the Triplane is flying it's full speed ahead on the Pup!

If anybody's been to this and the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome,....how to they compare and contrast. I have the O.R. Aerodrome 30 min away and love it.

I'll need to visit this place too. A few months ago I was visiting a big machine/fabrication shop in reading for a work project. The group I was with went to the general foreman's office and I happened to notice a couple of perforated tubes on one of his tables. After we were done with business I said those look like cooling jackets for a spandau machine gun - that's exactly what they were, and he said he would be making them into "firing" guns, using propane for make the flash and report. Nice meeting fellow aviation enthusiasts.

I think the Mid-Atlantic Air museum is not too far away.

Hey Tough Italian Kid,
We're like Rhinebeck quite a bit but we're still working on the WW1 end of things.
