Sunday, October 14, 2018 | 9:00-6:00pm

Travel Session: Bealeton, Va., “Flying Circus” & the Museum of Culpeper History (a day-trip led by historian Rick Britton)

We’ll start off by touring the Museum of Culpeper History, then walk to lunch at the fabulous “It’s About Thyme.” In the afternoon we’ll enjoy the stunt-flying and shenanigans performed by the fantastic biplane pilots of Bealeton’s “Flying Circus.” Although these planes are a bit newer than those flown by Jimmy McConnell in World War I, watching them makes it easy to imagine the aerial combat of that bygone age. (Tour departs 9:00 a.m., returns between 5:30 & 6:30 p.m.)

Location: The Center
