In September 2003 the Aviation Foundation of America is sponsoring the re-creation of the 1925-1931 National Air Tours. The re-creation will be held in the fall of 2003 in celebration of the centennial of powered flight. From September 8, 2003 through September 24, 2003, weather permitting, the tour will fly approximately 25 rare vintage aircraft over a 4,000 mile route visiting more than two-dozen cities and towns in 21 states and the District of Columbia. This is a grass roots effort; all aircraft and pilots are volunteers.
