Dawn Patrol Rendezvous

Traveled up north to the USAF Museum to attend the marking of 100th Anniversary of the WWI, or as the event was titled Dawn Patrol Rendezvous. Well attended even for a brisk cloudy day, and there were lots of displays, antique cars, re-in actors to view, and of course the highlight was seeing replicas of WWI aircraft flying. Could be several ideas here for the latest iModeler Group Build,” iModeler in the Movies.”
The Spad was built from original plans with the only exception being a modern engine. Gosh it was pretty. Hope you enjoy the pics, I had a lot of fun taking them.

    That Fokker D-VII sure is purty-ful! So is that SPAD. And the … well, you get the idea. I hadn’t heard of this showing – I might’ve gone. Looks like a lot of outstanding displays. There are some fine looking autos, as well.
