Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome (ORA)
Cole Palen purchased this property in 1958, and created a replica World War I Aerodrome, complete with full-size flying aircraft, vehicles and hangars. This unique setting offered an ideal location to fly WWI model aircraft.

In 1967, the Mid-Hudson Radio Control Society, with support from ORA and AMA, sponsored the first WWI Jamboree – the first such event devoted exclusively to WWI models. The annual Jamboree attracts modelers from around the world, drawing in excess of 8000 spectators at its peak.
