We are based in Hampton Roads, VA. Our meetings are primarily conducted at Our Hanger (D-1) at the Franklin, VA Airport (FKN) on the second Saturday of each month. Our Stinson OY-1 and Ryan PT-22 are based at the Franklin Airport, visitors are always encouraged to attend our meetings.
The Ryan PT-22 was purchased by the CAF and assigned to our squadron in July, 2009. The PT-22 is painted exactly how it would have looked during WWII while training US Army Air Corps pilots. Our Stinson OY-1/L-5 “Sentinel”, an observation and utility aircraft built in 1944, is undergoing a complete restoration and should return to the air in the latter part of 2009. We normally have working parties going on several times a month to complete work on our various aircraft. The squadron’s Martin dorsal .50 caliber machine gun turret, as installed on several types of WW II aircraft, is fully operational and is a big hit with the public at air shows and at Squadron events.
The Old Dominion Squadron participates in static and flying air shows in the eastern US, particularly in Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina. If you are interested in having any of our aircraft, Our PX or one of our members aircraft at your next show, contact our operations officer, Col. Robert Fryer.
We also publish a monthly-illustrated newsletter, “The Taildragger,” with squadron activities, our schedule of meetings and air shows, and articles on air shows, other flying museums, and World War II aviation history.
