World War I Dawn Patrol Rendezvous

Just the name sounds cool, but a chance to see WWI war birds in the sky is something that is hard for me to turn down.  The event is hosted in a field next to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force with the museum as a backdrop.  Manned aircraft took turns with model craft of all sizes and descriptions.  An amazing smorgasbord of history and color.  If you are anywhere near a buff, you would have been in seventh heaven here.  The museum also recently opened it’s new wing.  I didn’t get a chance to go in and see what was new, but you can bet it’s on my bucket list for the near future.

Here’s a gallery of shots from today.  See if you can tell the difference between the RC models and the real thing.
