​The National Museum of the US Air Force at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, will go back in time a century in October to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I. The museum on Oct. 1-2 will host the “World War I Dawn Patrol Rendezvous,” a re-enactment including full scale and 7/8 scale aircraft such as the Nieuport, SE-5, and Fokker Dr. I triplane, according to a museum news release. Pilots in the aircraft will fly precision maneuvers and a mock shoot down of an enemy aircraft. In addition, there will be re-enactors in a war encampment setting and era automobiles on display, the release states.
