Very cool. Thanks...

One learns much by these projects (especially with photos) as they try to use, as much as possible, original techniques and material types.

 

I was thinking "What a cool job!" then noted in the documentation that most are volunteers. Still be neat though!

That N28 was owned and restored by Cole Palen and flew at Old Rhinebeck according to this link. They found some of Mr. Palen's writing on a piece of fabric during this restoration.

The text on the left reads:

 

The French Nieuport 28 aircraft flew with the 27th, 94th, 95th and 147th American squadrons during WWI.

The Museum's artifact is a factory constructed Nieuport made shortly after the war.

It has been restored in the colors of James Meissner's 94th Aero Squadron airplane.

 

And, Rickitycrate, you're right - it belonged to Cole Palen's Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome earlier.

Makes sense, the US purchased an additional 600 N.28's at war's end

Would love to see one up close
