Restorers

Aviation Destinations

Season 1, Episode 4 of 5

"Aviation Destinations" highlights aviation vacation destinations where you can experience historic aircraft. Featuring three varied stories, we travel to Kitty Hawk, NC to experience the Wright Brothers' first flight by flying in a replica Wright Glider on those historic sand dunes. The second destination is the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome in NY, where these restorers have rebuilt a number of vintage aircraft from 1909 up to WWI-era. They use these aircraft to put on two Flying Circus-type airshows every weekend, all summer long. Finally, we travel to Chino, California to experience the aviation-world famous Planes of Fame, including an aviation graveyard, a restoration hangar, and many rare restored aircraft. While there we highlight one of their many history programs on the Vietnam War with UH-1 Hueys.
