In the early 20th century, aviation was still in its infancy.  Before that period, British military aviators practiced landings and takeoffs right here in the Jupiter Inlet.  At the height of World War I, Americans thought U.S. fighter pilots were respected and held in high regard.  The fighter pilots bravely flew in middle of one of history’s bloodiest wars to protect and serve our country.

This year, 2017, is the 100th anniversary celebration of the United States joining our allies in World War I in 1917.  The Flagler Museum salutes these aerial heroes with a “Knights of the Air: Aviator Heroes of World War 1” exhibition within the museum located in Palm Beach.
