    Rhinebeck Airshows?

    Has anyone ever been here before? Place looks like it would have a lot of great photo ops between the museum and the airshow. I may check this out in the very near future as it is only like a half hour from my house. Apparently it is sort of like walking back into time when you go to this place.

    I've attended shows over the last several years. I found that the last weekend of the shows (mid October) is the best time to go. Great tree colors and they seemed to fly a lot more aircraft than they normally do (I could be wrong on the but that is the way it seemed). I will miss being able to go this year with my move to Nashville.
    The show does not start until later in the afternoon, so if you donít really love aircraft and aviation history donít show up at 9am or whenever the gates open. You can get some nice pictures that early but there is not really that much of an advantage to hanging out there for several hours before the show.
    On a side note, there was a fatal crash last month at the airfield during the show, Iím not sure how that affected things. Going to an air show you have the risk of viewing such things. You attend enough events and you will most likely see an accident.
    A few shots form last Octoberís show.





    Iíd say go and have a great time! The show is also setup great for kids so they might enjoy it also.

    I was there about 5 years ago. From what I can remember you can get decent shots in the afternoon.

    I read about the fatality in the local paper......but have not heard if this has effected the airshows or not. The place looks pretty neat, seems like it would be a fun afternoon, those old planes are great!

    As for the fatality,I have seen more than my share of them in the last 35 years of going to auto races, so while I certainly have no desire to witness any more, that is not something that would stop me from going to an airshow.

    Great photos also, looks like you get pretty close to them to get some good shots. Thanks for the info!
