DH is an aficionado of such things, but my knowledge of World War I aircraft is pretty much limited to the names Sopwith Camel and Fokker Triplane from the Snoopy and the Red Baron comics.
That didn't stop me from having a fine time at the recent "Biplanes and Triplanes WWI Airshow" at the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach. The museum hosts a large WWII airshow every May, and has a WWI show every two years.
The planes are interesting to see up close...
...and there are always some people in period dress.
The announcers always keep up an informative and entertaining commentary while the planes fly.
There were often 3 or 4 planes flying together for a great visual show.
As the planes landed, you could see that many of the pilots sported flowing silk scarves, just like this one:
The planes were all replicas, except for an actual Curtis Jenny built in 1918 and restored to flying condition. This was one of the most famous planes built by the Glenn Curtis company. That was one more name I recognized, because the Glenn Curtis Musem is located in Hammondsport, NY, and DH went to visit the museum one year while I was at the Fingerlakes Tatting Convention. Look what I did there, sneaking in tatting content :)
