Announcement: Due to the current and forecasted weather situation over ORA and the greater Hudson Valley region, we have CANCELED the air show for today only, Saturday October 3rd, 2015. Low overcast, rain, gusty winds and low level wind shear are all in store for today.
The museum remains open 10am to 5:30pm with scheduled rainout tours at 12pm and 2pm. There are also kids activities associated with our fall festival. These include face painting, pumpkin painting and coloring.
The airshow is still a go for Sunday. Come on out both days!
The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is a true “living” museum of antique aviation located in the historic town of Rhinebeck, New York. We present one of the largest collections of early aeroplanes in the world, as well as automobiles, motorcycles, early engines and memorabilia spanning the period from 1900-1939.
During our exciting weekend air shows, the Aerodrome turns back the hands of time and relives the early years of aviation (weather permitting). This colorful era is brought back to life amidst the roar of rotary engines and is great entertainment for all ages. The Saturday shows chronicle the history of flight with pioneer, World War I and Lindbergh era aircraft taking to the skies. If the winds are calm you will even see our 1909 Bleriot (the oldest flying aircraft in the United States) take to the air. The Sunday shows feature a World War I dogfight as well as barnstorming aircraft.
In addition to weekend aerial demonstrations, the Aerodrome also offers four museum buildings housing static displays of aircraft from the pioneer, World War I and Lindbergh/barnstorming eras which are open to the public seven days a week from June to October.
