In the golden years of 1900 - 1939 man (and woman) discovered and mastered the principle of flying. Apart from the First world war - the flying was an endless joy of discovering the pleasure of flying. Those day they could feel the wind and the smells from the engine. Nowadays flying is like a commutertrain - smelly indeed - but not pleasent. Try to catch the history and the joy of the early years flying experiences. Certainly a lot of people have been visiting Airshows- give us your best - recreating the Golden years of flying!
