Such a wonderful restaurant - the owner is a sweet heart friendly and a hard worker. They upgraded their menu this year having a much better selection and variety. It is always fun to watch the planes both arrive and leave... Usually there is a long wait but that's ok - the restaurant owner invested in some fun outdoor games... More

We love the airfield! My husband's father kept an airplane here. I recommend the thrilling biplane rides and the great food and view at the Right Fork Diner. My husband and I spend hours here watching the airplanes!

We were there when Obama was on vacation so we got to meet his secret service. We did the Chappaquidick Edgartown flight. It was so much fun seeing everything on a beautiful clear day. Seeing the beaches as well as our house was very cool. Will definitely do it again this summer

This small airport is fun for kids and aviation geeks. Small light planes land and take off on the grass. There is also an antique bi-plane that offers rides. On a recent visit we saw other interesting vintage airplanes landing and taking off. Kids of all ages love this place and the diner there only open in the high season... More

Both of us were fitted to a parachute and could easily get into the front seat of the biplane. We were the given a leather helmet and goggles to put on. The goggles do fit over smaller framed prescription glasses. It was difficult to hear with the speaker system but we were able to hear the pilot, Mike, who did... More

While you are waiting for your breakfast, lunch, or dinner at the Right Fork Diner you can pass the time away enjoying watching the takeoff and landing of the biplane tour ride operator or other area locals flying in and landing for the day or weekend.

Don't miss this when you're visiting MV! By all means, take the biplane sightseeing tour. Have a bite at the Right Fork Diner and then tour the island by air. Pilot Mike gave an informative tour and we got some great aerial shots from the plane.
