WORLD WAR 1 AEROPLANES, Inc., was founded by Leo Opdycke in 1961 and incorporated as a federally recognized 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit corporation in 1979. We publish two quarterly journals: WW1 Aero: The Journal Of The Early Aeroplane & Skyways: The Journal Of The Airplane 1920-1940. History comes alive within the pages of WW1 Aero and Skyways, which together offer a complete history of aviation from the pioneer era through the golden age. WW1 Aero details the beginnings of flight, from the time man first yearned to fly like a bird, through the primitive early flying machines, all the way to the dogfights of World War 1. Skyways indulges in the beautiful and innovative aircraft produced during the interwar period. Each journal brings you history in stunning detail, with rare photos, drawings and articles from preeminent aviation authors and historians. Take a peek at current restoration and replica projects around the world and learn about original construction materials and techniques. Read about the latest museum and air show news, find aeroplanes and parts for sale, or discover the world of vintage aircraft modeling. WW1 Aero and Skyways has it all.
