Wednesday morning the Tour rolled across Connecticut to cross into New York, their first destination being the Old Reinbeck Aerodrome in Red Hook. It’s only natural that after seeing boats and ports, cars and motorcycles, they would take in a visit to an airplane collection. Though one of our current advertising campaigns features the message of our manufacturing synthetic oils for any engine, the reality is that we no long produce oil for airplanes as we once did for the Rutan Racer.
Old Reinbeck Aerodome is an amazing collection of very early airplanes and related items that was originally begun by Cole Palen back in 1951. Since Mr. Palen’s passing a number of years ago it has been managed by a non-profit trust. On summer weekends they re-enact dog-fights that recreate the battles of World War One. For a nominal admission fee tourists can visit the Aerodome during the week.
