World War 1 Aeroplanes (ww1aeroinc)

WORLD WAR 1 AEROPLANES was founded by Leo Opdycke in 1961 and incorporated as a federally recognized 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit corporation in 1979. In 2016 a decision was made by the board of Trustees to dissolve the organization, and transfer the assets to the Rhinebeck Aerodrome Museum to allow back issues, documents and other related items to remain available to the public. The possibility remains open for new issues to be released, however that is a decision that will be made at a later date.

Over the years, two quarterly journals were produced by WWI Aeroplanes: WW1 Aero: The Journal Of The Early Aeroplane & Skyways: The Journal Of The Airplane 1920-1940. History comes alive within the pages of WW1 Aero and Skyways, which together offer a complete history of aviation from the pioneer era through the golden age. WW1 Aero details the beginnings of flight, from the time man first yearned to fly like a bird, through the primitive early flying machines, all the way to the dogfights of World War 1. Skyways indulges in the beautiful and innovative aircraft produced during the interwar period. Each journal brings you history in stunning detail, with rare photos, drawings and articles from preeminent aviation authors and historians. Restoration and replica projects around the world are also well covered, as are original construction materials and techniques. Museum and air show news was also covered in these publications as well as the world of vintage aircraft modeling. WW1 Aero and Skyways covered it all.
