If it were to be simply put, Wings of Honor is about WWI aviation. However, it cannot be simply put.
WWI was a time of amazing change practically throughout the world, but perhaps the greatest change the world witnessed was the dawn of aviation, and within a few short years, the dawn of combat aviation.
Aircraft in WWI started out as a seemingly random collection of fabric, wood and wires that was barely able to lift the pilot off the ground. Within a few years, aircraft were achieving terrifying speeds, strafing infantry with deadly effectiveness, and bombing key targets. Air to air combat was being carried out with nimble, strong, and deadly machines.
The pilots of these early aircraft were daring, strong men that viewed their fellow pilots as brothers. The ties were close, and indeed, the respect for one another extended across enemy lines. These men were the "knights" of the air, and particularly at the beginning of the war, carried a chivalrous code of honor with them for which they would sooner die than break.
Wings of Honor is dedicated to this time in our world history, and in particular, these men and their machines.
We honor and strive to understand this turbulent time and these men though historical features about the men, their aircraft and the war, as well as simulations, modeling, and discussion. You will find all of it here at Wings of Honor.
Our primary goal is to work with you to help us all gain a better understanding of our past while having fun at the same time.
We sincerely hope you enjoy your visit, and we welcome your input and feedback as to how we can continue to serve you better each and every day.
