Fatal Accident 15 Years Ago

The only fatality during an airshow at the facility was back in August of 2008 when Vincent Nasta of Wading River, New York was performing a simulated aerial battle at the aerodrome when his plane crashed into a heavily wooded area 1000 feet from the performance area. He died of his injuries.

In 2016, a former chief pilot and mechanic at the Rhinebeck Aerodrome, Bill Gordon, died in a New York City plane crash when his plane went into the Hudson River. This crash was not directly related to the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome.
