The National Museum of the US Air Force in Dayton, Ohio, is preparing to host a commemoration for the centennial of World War I in Europe. The event, dubbed World War I Dawn Patrol Rendezvous, is set to take place Sept. 27-28. It will feature vintage model airplanes, “such as the Nieuport, SE-5, and Fokker Dr. I triplane,” states a July 9 release. The museum has boasted it as one of America’s “premier historical aviation events.” The festivities will include pilots performing precision flying and participating in a flour-bombing competition, a WWI reenactment, and a parade of automobiles from that generation. The museum will also have an exhibition of WWI radio-controlled aircraft, games, simulators, and a collector’s show of items from the war. The last WWI Dawn Patrol Rendezvous took place in the fall of 2011, states the release.
