Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome Red Hook, NY
Hanger doors open. Wood propellers are pulled. Engines blossom to life with a puff of blue smoke and a biplane takes to the skies. A long-forgotten era comes to life just miles up the Hudson River from New York City at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome. A grass airstrip, old hangers, and even older airplanes will greet you, as will the quiet of a summer pasture with the distant sound of aircraft engines. This is an effortless trip back in time when the first fragile wood-and-cloth airplanes took to the skies. You don’t need an invitation to come her – just arrive. But check the web site for airshows and biplane rides. There is almost always something going on each and every weekend through late Fall.
