Liberty's First Flight

May 16 & 17 | Bowling Green, KY

Liberty’s First Flight

On the morning of May 16, 2020, an historic event will take place at the airport in Bowling Green, KY. A 1918 American-built DH4 “Liberty” Plane will once again take to the skies, making its first public flight. At 9AM – and after a hiatus of nearly 80 years from the sky – she will break the bonds of earth, becoming the only original military DH4 flying in the world. This is a unique opportunity to participate in a piece of our country’s aviation heritage.


Welcome to Friends of Vintage Flight (FOVF), LLC., is a non-profit (501C3) organization founded to bring the early American Aviation story to the general public in the form of a hands-on, flying WW1 warbirds. We currently have two planes in our hanger – the first a 1917 Curtiss JN-4 Biplane and the second a 1918 American-built DH4 “Liberty” combat warplane.


We invite you to join our group of Aviation Enthusiasts, Pilots, and Craftsman to maintain and fly these legends of the air.
