Wings of Glory First Time Over the Lines
July 31, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

On March 6, 1918 America’s then leading ace, Major Raoul Lufbery, took Lt. Eddie Rickenbacker, America’s future leading ace, up for his firs flight over the front! Their flight of 3 French built Nieuport 28 fighter planes (they brought a friend, Lt. Douglas Campbell) took off from the American Aerodrome at Villeneuve at 8:15 in the morning. Historically, they didn’t get into a fight, but what if that flight of German Fighters had been game?
Take to the skies in a World War 1 fighter plane as Eddie Rickenbacker or a German pilot in Ares Games’ Wings of Glory Rules will be taught, Planes will be provided BUT NO PARACHUTES WILL BE ISSUED!
