FLIGHTS OF FANCY is a celebration of vintage air-bending pioneer aviation and steampunk. It is a match made in time-travel heaven!
The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome was founded in 1958 by Cole Palen with a handful of airplanes and a dream. He built it into a world-renowned destination as America’s first flying museum of antique aircraft. See over 60 vintage aircraft, many antique automobiles and motorcycles, and related memorabilia in a classic small town airport setting.
