Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome's flights are on

The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome just announced that Saturday's air show featuring flying antique airplanes of the pioneer and barnstorming era will take place as planned at 2 p.m.

Temporary flight restrictions over Rhinebeck for something that's apparently happening in there "will be respected by re-routing biplane air tours away from the restricted area during the ... period between 3 p.m. on Saturday through 3:30 a.m. on Sunday morning," said Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome Vice President Don Fleming in a news release. "The 2 p.m. World War I Air Show and biplane rides on Sunday will not be affected at all."

“But folks signing up for a biplane ride on Saturday should not expect to be treated to a birds-eye-view of the Clinton-Mezvinski nuptials,” Fleming said.

Wait! What wedding?
