Awesome Foundation Trustees visit Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome

16 Jul

Trustees from the Awesome Foundation, Hyunjin Kim, Jesse Chan-Norris and Angela Wu, visited the Aerodrome on opening weekend of airshows and went for a ride in the Baker Electric. While they were visiting they stayed to see a show and were given a tour of the Aerodrome’s facilities and latest projects. The trustees also went for a ride in the Aerodrome’s 1929 New Standard biplane to see the Hudson Valley from the air.  Our thanks to Hyunjin, Jesse and Angela for taking time from their busy schedules to visit, and for the Awesome Foundation’s support of the Aerodrome’s Baker Electric project.
