B.Dowsett - Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome
The red Fokker Dr I make low pass over the aerodrome.
Aeroplane first reported from Old Rhinebeck, 80 miles north of New York, in October 1973. Since then Cole Palen's Fokker Dr I replica has been a Rhinebeck airshow stalwart; it was joined in 1983 by Bill Winter’s all-red, Warner-powered Dr I replica N2009R, on photo.
Palen’s dis­plays combine World War One nostalgia with American showmanship. The baddies strafe the hapless crew of a motorcycle and sidecar.
