Air Museum Network – Connecting You with Aviation History

Avoid the Papal crowds in Philly this weekend and head to the Golden Age Air Museum’s Flying Circus

Bethel, PA — The visit by Pope Francis this weekend to Philadelphia is historic for some but for others it means major traffic headaches. If you’re part of the latter, why not head away from the city and experience a unique side of aviation history at the Golden Age Air Museum’s Fall Flying Circus airshow?

The Golden Age Air Museum in Bethel, PA will be hosting their Fall Flying Circus event in which they fly aircraft from the Golden Age (prior to WWII) of aviation. While there are a few reproductions, most of the aircraft are restored originals including a 1918 Curtiss JN-4D “Jenny”, a 1925 Winstead Special and a 1936 Aeronca C3 Master (AKA the Flying Bathtub).

With it’s grass field, picturesque country scenery and family atmosphere, the event hearkens back to the days of barnstormers and seat-of-your-pants flying. You won’t see multi-million dollar warbirds here but you will see some of the aircraft from aviation’s early days.
