From WW1 Aero Editor Jonathan Fallon:

In recent months, the WW1 Aeroplanes, Inc. board of trustees voted to dissolve the organization and turn over all of its assets to the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome. I have been informed that all legal steps have already been taken to conclude the arrangement and that the publication of WW1 Aero and Skyways will end indefinitely.

As editor of WW1 Aero, it has been my great pleasure to serve the community of early aviation enthusiasts and help perpetuate interest in the people and machines from this fascinating period of technological innovation. Along the way I was able to work with a host of wonderful and talented authors and meet many of our readers who share a passion for early aeroplanes. It is their interest and enthusiasm that made this journal what it was. I can only imagine how much interest was generated, how much new information was uncovered and how many aircraft were constructed or restored as a result of those who were kind enough to share their knowledge, research and projects in these pages.

I am also grateful to Leo Opdycke, the founder and long-time editor of WW1 Aero, for his tireless efforts over the years to build the organization and establish the journal, and also for his warm welcome and support when I joined the organization in 2009. I have done my best to stay true to his vision, although, as I stated in the editor’s column of my very first issue (#202), nobody can fill his shoes.

The future of the WW1 Aeroplanes, Inc. archive and its treasure trove of information is now under control of the Rhinebeck Aerodrome Museum, and updates will likely be posted on their website with regard to future availability, etc.

As I release my final issue of WW1 Aero, I would like to express my gratitude to, and appreciation for, all those who read and contributed to the journal over the years. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of being your editor.

Blue Skies,

Jonathan Fallon
