Many people were curious to experience this event, the fine weather also contributed to make it a success.

The first one to be rolled out was the Fokker E.V (N111EV) complete with pilot in 1920's style flying suit. The engine started without any problem.

 The Nieuport 24's (N2262G) engine was slightly more stubborn to start, but after some priming provided the spectators with the beautiful sound and caster oil smell of it’s original 1918 rotation engine. Superb !

The Fouga Magister MT-13 (now on display at the museum) was a silent witness to the event and watched it with much approval.
