A Quick Look At Our Glorious Past!
The American Barnstormers Tour, according to supercub.org, attempts to recreate “The Golden Age of Aviation” which was from the end of World War I till America’s entry into World War II. Barnstorming tours, record-breaking flights and trophy races were all conducted in those days which captured the public attention and had the people asking for more. This tour helps people to travel back in time and relive that glorious era. It tries to recreate the thrill that people might have experienced in those days when they saw the barnstormers across the sky and waited with bated breath to take their first biplane ride by paying a few dollars.
Our first barnstorming tour was conducted in 2006 with 17 flights and the number of aircrafts in attendance have kept on growing from then on. This tour provides an opportunity to people who wants to re-live the past by watching and riding some gloriously restored and maintained aircrafts. The aviators are keen to pass on the history of these magnificent “time machines” – as some would call these aircrafts – to the visitors.
We verify that each of the aircrafts that participates are original and not a recreated version. They take pains to recreate that era with all pilots and crew members spotting period outfits. They also use vintage aircraft signage, props etc. and also make attempts to make the area where airplanes are parked during the tour to look as historically authentic as possible with buntings and flags.
For an aviation history buff nothing can be more exciting than attending this gathering of pilots who are passionate about promoting vintage aviation and love being its ambassadors. They are enthusiastic about sharing the personal history of their aircraft and are ready to share their flying stories with anyone who would care to listen.
An open cockpit ride might be something that you had always dreamed of. Make that wild dream come true! Enjoy the thrill of your hair flying around your face as you soar up the open sky and zoom around like a bird. For a fee of around $50, weather permitting, the visitors are allowed the ride of their life, in a plane of their choice. If you find all this thrilling, then head straight for our next barnstorming tour.
With not just the aircraft’s restored well, but also the ambience recreated to perfection, this is one event you don’t want to miss if you are a vintage airplane enthusiast and yearns for an authentic aviation experience.
