2009 Dawn Patrol RendezvousThe bi-annual Dawn Patrol Rendezvous is being held this weekend (September 25-27) at the National Museum of the US Air Force in Dayton, Ohio!  This is something you don't want to miss.  Unfortunately it looks like I'm going to miss it myself.  But I will live vicariously through all your photos and videos!

One of the nation's premier historical aviation events will bring the excitement and adrenaline of early air power to Ohio on Sept. 25-27, 2009. The three-day World War I Dawn Patrol Rendezvous features vintage original and reproduction WWI aircraft, radio-controlled models, era automobiles, period re-enactors and a collector's show. This FREE flying event is offered every other year by the museum and the Great War Aeroplanes Association.
The schedule looks to be jam-packed full of excitement:
