Filming Fighters

Our first major aerial shoot took place this past October, with two Nieuport 17s and a German Rumpler played multiple roles covering the exploits of the Escadrille, and southern Pennsylvania playing the role of France. Our enormous thanks to Neal Baughman, Rick Bennett, Andrew King, Eric Lunger, Tom Martin, Neil Negley, Mike O’Neal, and Gerry Wild, and all at the Golden Age Air Museum in Bethel, Pennsylvania. The filming was made possible with generous support form the de Ramel Foundation and the Richard Lounsbery Foundation. We are most grateful for their support.
