The next project

Many of you have asked me "what's next?"

Well, here is the answer:

Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome
Red Hook, NY, United States ยท 

The Aerodrome saw our Nieuport 11 head off this morning for its rebuild. After suffering an unplanned and abrupt return to the earth several years ago, she has remained in storage since then. An agreement made over the course of this winter will see her returned to airworthy status at the talented hands of Brian Karli and Ron Alexander of the Candler Field Museum in Williamson, GA. Candler Field will retain the use of her, on loan, in their museum and on their flightline for a period of three years before returning to the skies over Rhinebeck and a reinsertion into the weekly airshows following that period. Brian and Ron most recently completed a museum quality restoration of an airworthy Hisso Jenny much like ORA's and it is a stunner! We are very happy to be continuing and further building this positive relationship with our fellow museum in Georgia and look forward to seeing Victor Chapman's Nieuport 11 back in the air soon! Stay tuned!

Rest assured, the Jenny is alive and well.  



Cheers
